Irene Hardwicke Olivieri lives mostly off the grid outside Sisters. The wildness of the land and all that call it home inspires her work; Her primary art is painting, but she’ll draw, sketch, and use watercolors in an attempt to capture a feeling or an emotion that conveys her deep love of all that is wild. Her work also helps her cope with the intensity of her feelings about preserving wildlife and lands. She feels that painting is what she was out onto this earth to do, and hopes her work will inspire others to not just value wildlife, but inspire a vision of peaceful co-existence with all species.
