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.
