Paintings and Drawings by Charmaine Olivia
Charmaine Olivia is for me one of the greatest design/art revelations from 2010. A 22 years old girl based at San Francisco, CA, she consider herself as a drawer, painter, tea-drinker and a self-taught artist. Her paintings and drawings show us a very particular fashion and beautiful reality with portraits of tattooed, sexy and interesting girls.
I'm a dreamer, painter, tea-drinker, self-taught San Franciscan artist. I was born and raised in a small beach town in Southern California where I first started drawing with soy sauce on napkins but have since upgraded to paper and paint. I now reside in San Francisco's sunny Mission District where I love playing Scrabble in the park, cuddling with my kitten & drinking peppermint tea ( Charmaine's Website ).
A huge source of inspiration are my dreams. I dream every night (which can be tiresome.) I rarely have a shortage of ideas or inspiration, it’s finding the time to create all the images in my head that can be tricky. Unfortunately many of these mental images get lost and buried under new ones ( We love Creativity Charmaine's Interview )
