Olivia Pilling was born in Todmorden, Lancashire. While still a student she had solo and mixed shows in The Midlands, London and the North West.
She takes her inspiration from the small industrial town landscapes and architecture of the Pennines. She brings together the rolling hills and valleys, the mills and towering chimneys to form natural semi-absract shapes.
...>She uses acrylic paint on canvas and the vibrant, intense colours applied with spontaneous brush strokes give her pictures a lively and joyful appearance.
Olivia is quickly gaining a reputation as a growing talent in the North West and further afield.
