OLIVIA O'CARRA

    Largely self  taught Olivia has been painting since her childhood. In 2002 she took early retirement from a scientific career to follow her passion for painting.
    Following a course in Oil Painting in her local Community College ( a course which she has since given herself) she found her work in much demand.
    Her first Solo Exhibition in the Frank Lewis Gallery was a sell out.
    Her style of painting is mainly representational.
    She paints in a traditional manner, starting with thin paint building up in layers using glazing and scumbling and finally using thicker paint in an impasto fashion to give texture and depth.
