My name is Olivia. I was born and grew up by the ocean, but now I live amidst cows and cornfields and cities large and small. I am a writer and an artist and a maker. I read compulsively. I am always thinking, pondering and discovering, and always dreaming. I love history, and fantasy, fairy tales and myths and poetry. I live for beauty. I see it in the wild and the refined, the dark and the light. My eyes are always open, looking for beauty, because I never know in what unexpected place I might find it.
