Olivia is a Georgia native, having grown up in the suburbs of the greater Atlanta area. She knew she wanted to pursue the arts at a young age, and spent her childhood constantly making. This passion for the arts led her to attend Valdosta State University for her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. It was there that she studied ceramics and jewelry extensively. She decided to further her study in the jewelry field by continuing her education and completed her Master of Fine Arts in Jewelry at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Olivia continues to work as an artist and maker, and is pursuing a career in higher education, hoping to foster a love of metalworking and jewelry making in her students. She has exhibited along the east coast and is currently completing a Teaching Internship in the Design Technology Department of Marlborough College in the UK.
