I am a veterinary surgeon and artist, based in Wiltshire. Having immersed myself in science for over 15 years, I recently gave in to the need to paint. I find a healthy dose of creativity does wonders for my sanity, and have realised that life is too short to not attempt a foray into the art world. I am inspired by the animals of the British countryside that I love so much.
Last year I changed my name from Olivia Hicks to Olivia de Rivaz (pronounced DUH-REE-VARZE!), and now paint under this name.
