The Paintings of Charmaine Olivia

Charmaine Olivia is a self-taught San Franciscan artist. Charmaine was born and raised in a small beach town in Southern California where she claims some of her first drawings were scrawled with soy sauce on napkins. 

Some of Charmaine's clients and projects have included Urban Outfitters, Eyes on the Wall, Envelop, Threadless, Infectious, Pingg,, Cool Hunting & Society6.

Charmaine's work has a subtle sexiness and a quaint aesthetic, feature girls, tattoos, antlers and alike. Her unique style and painting process assures us we will be seeing a lot more of her work in the future.

You can purchase prints, limited edition prints and originals of Charmaine's work via her Etsy store HERE.

Charmaine Olivia now resides in San Francisco's sunny Mission District where she enjoys playing Scrabble in the park, cuddling with her kitten & drinking peppermint tea.

Charmaine has an upcoming exhibition in January 2011 at Vessel, San Francisco, CA.
