Charmaine Olivia is a self-taught fine art painter born in Southern California in 1988. She was raised by deeply spiritual parents who started teaching her yoga and meditation when she was four years old. Charmaine began oil painting at seven years old and has been a professional artist since she was 17. Growing up she spent the summers in the mountains at meditation camp studying intuition, metaphysics, and scientific methods of meditation. Spirituality and mysticism are a heavy influence in her art and her life. She is aware there is more to this physical world that we can see with our eyes and uses painting as a means to explore these other dimensions of mind and thought. Charmaine Olivia is seeking to explore who we are as conscious beings in the universe, and the role color, emotion, and self-discovery play in living a harmonious, fulfilled life. She believes that every being is an artist in their own way, and allowing that creative spark to express itself is vital for the future world we want to create.
