"My recent work interprets the ‘Tree Ogham’, an ancient Irish tradition that brings together indigenous tree lore with alphabetic and calendric systems and poetic and divinatory practices. In this series, each image represents a letter of the Ogham alphabet through an individual tree in its corresponding lunar month and explores mythological, practical and botanical associations."
Olivia is an award-winning sculptor and printmaker, specialising in linocut and woodcut techniques to create hand burnished, gilded and illuminated prints. Her work explores the rich metaphorical imagery of oral narrative traditions and our instinct for zoomorphism. She draws extensively from the flora and fauna that surround her studio on the banks of the Wylye River in Wiltshire. Olivia studied at Goldsmiths’ College (Art and Art History) and now lives and works at Bull Mill Arts, an
artists’ collective established by Lord Bath on the Longleat Estate. Olivia is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and her work is exhibited in London and throughout the UK.
