olivia ebert / 26 / adelaide
artist / interior designer
my style has changed since i first started painting, as a hobby several years ago. i began painting on commission with a very particular pop art inspired style, mostly portraits, using black, white and grey tones with only hints of colour. i have always had a creative mind & my passion for design, art & drawing led me to my pursue my career as a full time interior designer & part time artist.
colour is a constant in our lives & we summarise ourselves with colour in our appearance & our homes. we are all affected by certain hues; it has immediate impact, influencing our moods & reactions. colour corresponds, communicates & links us with its vast & visual unspoken language. my life & work consists of colour, design & creativity, & it is through this that inspires & drives my work. i draw inspiration from my travels, the city scape, nature, fashion & textiles, architecture & buildings.
my pieces articulate abstract thought from my soul into life on canvas, using vibrant & sensual colours with texture. often my works are spontaneous & appear unstructured, but i like how the unconstrained outcome surprises me. i am a perfectionistic person, but i have learnt there is beauty & a sense of order in experimentation with paint. my works are originals & cannot be replicated. they are simply a fragment of a mood & an expression of the place i am in at the time.
