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.
My work is currently available as originals, limited edition giclée canvas prints, unmounted giclée prints or greetings cards. These can be ordered either by contacting me directly, or via my Etsy page.
In 2018 I changed my name from Olivia Hicks to Olivia de Rivaz (pronounced DUH-REE-VARZE!), and now paint under this name.
I am a proud supporter of the Just A Card campaign, which aims to encourage people to support, value and buy from artists, designers, independent shops and small businesses by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are so vital to their prosperity and survival.
