Artist Biography
IMG_5241.JPG

Tania Olivier is a well established, full time artist living

and working from her Wild Swallow Art Studio in 

Cape Town, South Africa.

 

She has participated in many group and solo exhibitions locally and internationally since she started painting and pursuing her

fine art career in 2005.

She has also completed two large bodies of artwork for an

international company to furnish their

flagship offices in Maarssen, Holland on exclusive commission.

Her passion for photography inspires her 

subject matter, composition, colour tones and painting style.

 

"Playing with 'focus' and 'depth of field' when painting,

as in photography, I discover the subject matter's true beauty

and hidden qualities.

Light is the magic ingredient in bringing the painting to life

and I love to portray it in a very tangible

and textured way."

Tania's painting style is semi-abstract, robust yet

mysterious and her unique palette technique

is prominent in all her work. 

 

Tania enjoys working mostly in oils, soft pastels and acrylic. ​​

​She is a full time, working artist and

enjoys taking on commission work.
