Drawing has always been a cathartic and playful process for Olivia Wendel, a method of exploring memories and inventing other worlds. After studying painting and printmaking, her love of pattern and repetition led her naturally to textiles.
Olivia views textiles as a way to bring her drawings to life, giving them movement and presence. Every design begins by hand in her Brooklyn studio, and the original artwork is preserved and celebrated in the translation from painting to textile.
Olivia's work has been featured in VOGUE, Nylon, The New York Times, and WWD.
