Infusing Happiness
Infusing Happiness

Artist statement:
Through my art, my ultimate goal is to infuse happiness into people’s lives. I firmly believe that the vivid and textured paintings I create using bold, colorful oils have the power to provide solace, allowing individuals to unwind and rejuvenate amidst the demands of their busy lives. My art pieces are carefully crafted to stand out as central pieces while also contributing to a sense of emotional balance. Designed to fit seamlessly in various spaces, such as offices, bedrooms, or living rooms, my creations aim to provide a wonderful escape and inspiration.

Olga moved to British Columbia, Canada from Europe in 2000 and has since been constantly captivated and inspired by the natural beauty around.

She embarked on her artistic journey in mid life starting first with oil pastels. Throughout the years, she has delved into a diverse range of mediums as a self-taught artist.

Participating in various artist workshops, including Lian Zhen’s watercolors, has provided her with the opportunity to acquire unique techniques. With a decade of experience in drawing and painting, she has mastered oil pastels, acrylics, watercolors, color pencils, and graphite.

However, it wasn’t until 2022 that she stumbled upon the finger painting with oils technique, which has been a game-changer for her art. This revelation has enabled her to fully embrace the vibrant colors and textures she has always aspired to capture. She mostly works in an impressionistic style.

Olga is a current member in good standing with New West Artists, Langley Arts Council and Richmond Arts Coalition.

She currently resides in Surrey, British Columbia.
