Olivia Valentine Baynham - Me, My Friends & Other Places
"Olivia is a portrait and figurative artist based in London.
She is particularly interested in painting women, showing appreciation of elegance and subtlety of the female form.
In any portrait painting, whilst it’s important to capture the light, fluidity and character of the subject, she thinks it’s equally as important to focus on the chemistry between the artist and the subject. She hopes to evoke a sense of harmony and balance or sometimes mystery and humour which then translates to the viewer.
Most of the models Olivia has painted in this exhibition are old friends. Her passion and ambition is driven by these friendships as they continue to inspire her daily. She hopes to immortalise the beauty and unique characters of each friend."
