Olivia O'Carra is based in Killarney surrounded by magnificent scenery so it is hardly surprising that her main interest is in Landscape Painting.
Although she has always loved to sketch and paint her background is in the Sciences. However an early retirement package in 2003 has given her the wonderful opportunity to concentrate on her painting. She loves to spend time exploring the countryside and her paintings usually begin life as small pieces painted outdoors which inspire her larger studio paintings.
Olivia has had many exhibitions both group and solo. Her first solo exhibition in the Frank Lewis Gallery in 2007 was a sell-out. Her work is to be found in private collections worldwide.
