Originally from the Boston area, Olivia Baldwin studied at the University of Wisconsin-Madison before studying abroad in Florence, Italy. Not intending to study art – but realizing she needed art, she chose courses – painting, photography, performative work, creative writing – that would fill that sense of need.
Her experience in Florence was dramatically different in that she was welcomed as an artist, an equal, and learned to trust her creative instincts. Living in Austria brought experiences via inter-disciplinary work and participation in the Spiel Arts Festival. Back to Boston and then accepting a job at The Seligmann Center brought Olivia to Warwick, NY.
Our two-part interview with Olivia Baldwin begins next week! Find out what motivates and inspires her to paint, create, build.
Olivia will be exhibiting at the Seligmann Center this month ~
