angela oliver art

I was born in western Pennsylvania and have lived in southern California for over 20 years. In 2014, I left my profession as a Creative Director for print media and moved to Shenzhen, China with my husband. I began pursuing my first love… painting. Inspired by the buildings in southern China and a year of travel across southeast Asia, I came back to California with a new found interest in architecture and a fresh eye on the unique retro style of Long Beach.
My work focuses on color, pattern, architecture and type. My style has a basis in simplifying visual imagery into color fields.
