Olivia has recently joined us as a BA graduate from Camberwell College of Art, where she won a First in Illustration. In addition to her drawing skills she is also trained as a designer, with skills in marketing and on-line media.
What makes Olivia special to us, is that alongside her design skills, she has also gained a considerable amount of experience in the hospitality industry, working with some well-known names. She spent a part-time year with Jamie’s Italian, working on the front desk and behind the scenes; and then a summer organising commercial events at London Zoo, which gave her plenty of stories to tell!

For her most recent art project, Olivia masterminded the Cotswold Venus project.
Walkers on the Cotswold Way will encounter a series of ‘Venus’ figures, sculpted from wild clay and shaped like the earliest female figurines from the Stone Age. The aim is to connect walkers in this wild landscape with the ancient people who first travelled along this route.
At MYA, Olivia’s task is also to make connections: using an artist’s creative skills to connect our clients with their customers.
