Who's that Girl? - Charmaine Olivia

Beautiful and talented are two words that instantly come to mind when I think of 23 year old Charmaine Olivia. The eclectic Charmaine hails from San Francisco, California. Her style & persona are uniquely transferred through her art. I first came across Charmaine when I found her online store on Etsy where she sells her art prints. I was immediately drawn to not only her amazing art style, but to her  whimsical style and erethral charisma. Just like her art, Charmaine is captivating, strong and feminine. There's no doubt that Charmaine is truly a fine testament to our Who's that Girl paradigm. Charmaine is lucky enough to spend her day to day life doing what he loves, art. Individuality, passion & hard work make Charmaine an inspiration of beauty & talent and no doubt like her art she to will prove her longevity.
