Art Crush: Charmaine Olivia

Charmaine Olivia‘s passion for playing “Dress up” and “Cowboys and Indians” has obviously remained intact since childhood. Her work has a sweet, storybook-like quality – it is both beautiful and dreamlike.

This self-taught San Francisco artist paints portraits with eccentric accents that make her pieces one-of-a-kind. You might not know the women she paints, but you’ll become obsessed with their faces.
