In January 2010 Olivia participated in a collaborative show at the Lawndale Art Center called “DARe to go FURther” and “Thrice Removed” at SPACETAKER ARC in Houston. Olivia’s work hangs in numerous private and public collections and her decorative interior and restorative painting applications can be found in many homes and businesses, throughout Houston. In addition to her multifaceted approach to visual art, she enjoys teaching painting at High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, where it all started for her. She continues to volunteer and collaborate with organizations like Project Row Houses, Houston Arts Alliance and Diverse Works to name a few. Olivia is also a recipient of an Individual Artist Grant Award, which is funded by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
