Originally from New York City, Olivia found her love for the arts at a young age having been introduced to museums by her artistic parents. She attended college at the School of Museum of Fine Arts and finished at Tufts University in Boston. The summer before she graduated, Olivia and a group of her friends decided to open their own gallery, YES.OUI.SI. This creative agency lives for bringing people together around art, both in the physical and digital world.
