Meet the Artist
I'm Olivia Brooks, but you can call me Liv! While I've been creating my whole life, I didn't officially start Owlery 54 until January 2020 after a busy holiday season of taking commissions for friends and family. If it weren't for that support, I don't think I would have had the motivation to try to or the belief that I could be a professional artist.
I am a 2020 graduate of Winthrop University, where I studied Business Administration, Marketing and Fine Art. After graduating at the height of a pandemic, I decided it was as good a time as any to pursue my art full time. I have learned so much since then and I'm eager to keep creating art to share with you.
My biggest inspirations for art come from the most special places, things, and moments. I love creating custom pieces that turn your photos into a cherished piece of art. You'll find these aspects in my other works as well. Painting subjects like flowers, landscapes, and architecture often allow the viewer to revisit their favorite memories.
My husband and I got married in the summer of 2021 and we now live with our cat, Gilgamesh, in Lexington, SC. During the week you can find me in my studio working on projects and new ideas with Gil. I spend a Saturday or two a month at Soda City Market in Columbia, SC - so come by and shop in person!
