Nationally-known artist from Oregon Irene Hardwicke Olivieri creates unique works of art. They contain elements of her travels, adventures and relationships spanning her life. From childhood growing up along the Rio Grande River, traveling up the Amazon River on a cargo boat and living off-the-grid in Central Oregon. The painter received a Masters in Arts from NYU and worked as a gardener/lecturer at the Cloisters and at the New York Botanical Garden. When not painting, Olivieri spends much of her time hiking and exploring the wilderness. Noteworthy, with her art she aims to support and care for the earth and animals. Thus, she says “My heart breaks over what is happening to our wildlife”. “I want to create work that might inspire a startling love for our wild animals and a desire to protect them and their habitats.”
