Olivia Davidson was born and brought up in north east Scotland. She has travelled extensively and lived in various parts of the world including Saudi Arabia and India. Wherever she has settled, her paints have gone with her. When she returned to the north east, she joined art classes at Art on the Green and developed the expressive style you see today. She acknowledges the invaluable support and advice she received at classes from tutor, Danny Ross.
Olivia is known for her landscapes and seascapes although she also paints still life and figure paintings.
’The local coastlines and the stormy north east seas, shores and lochs provide endless inspiration for me. My paintings are usually in acrylic but I also paint in oils and watercolour. Sea and sky and the magical play of light are what inspire me. I try to capture the essence of the local landscape, of stormy seas and the changing mood of clouds.’
Olivia has exhibited regularly worldwide and she has work in collections in France, India, Italy, Saudi Arabia and USA.
