Hello, I'm Stacey Olendi

... a visual artist who focuses on Watercolor and Acrylic Painting. I am also currently exploring Ceramics.

 

My earliest memory of art is from when I was around 9 years old, and I would watch my mother, an illustrator at the time, work. I soon started imitating illustrations from my favourite story books and draw my own comic books.

In high school I briefly studied Arts & Craft before choosing to pursue music instead. As I grew older, my dreams faced the brunt most dreams do... My creative inner child was silenced while my skeptic “practical” adult took over.

 

I'm happy though that my inner child did not give up on me. For years, I would re-visit my passion to create, an on-and-off relationship I indulged in. When I finally pursued a career in art, I know there's no place I'd rather be.

Follow my journey, as I express myself through art, share my learning process and gain inspiration from the many things I love... dance, music, nature and life in general.
