For most artists, going to art school is non-negotiable. But for self-taught artist Charmaine Olivia, learning along the way can be just as profitable.
The San Francisco artist’s work has grown over the years from traditional black silhouettes on white background, to more intricate and colorful oil paintings. Olivia also adds a personal touch to all of her paintings by blending colors with her fingers. She keeps an open communication going between her and her audience not only through her art, but through her website, where she also becomes a muse as well as a maker. That way not only do the viewers see the art but the artist behind it.
