Olga is a Copenhagen based, Irish artist, producing limited edition prints of her original paintings and drawings.

Olga has also worked with Danish Jewellery company Goerg Jensen creating winter scenes for their 2014 Christmas Collection for 450 shops worldwide, and with the Queen of Denmark as part of her artistic team on her 2013 winter production of The Nutcracker in the Copenhagen’s world famous Tivoli Gardens. In 2015 she was part of the creative team working on Copenhagen's landmark Hotel D’Angleterre’s Christmas Display.
'There's an absurdity to life that is reflected on the stage and through the inner workings of making art. Then there's the everyday violence that some live with and others read about in the papers. I stand somewhere in between armed with a brush.’
