Artist's Statement:

Olivia Marie Braida-Chiusano, is a nature artist, a freelance, certified botanical artist/illustrator and author. Ms. Braida is the founder and director of the Academy of Botanical Art - an art school that provides complete texts for on-your-own home and tutored study to students around the world, as well as classroom study, art reviews, college art portfolio preparation.

Artist Statement: “My watercolor techniques are inspired by Gerard van Spaëndonck and the French Court tradition. They include layering of glazes and washes of mostly transparent watercolors. All of the detail is created with the paint brush. All images are hand-drawn from actual subjects. Images are not taken from and are not traced from photographs. I believe that botanical art represents the ascent of man and custom, of knowledge and thirst for knowledge. Its evolution parallels the human spirit and its quest for self-knowledge. In nature, plants by their proximity to various cultures have acquired their own meanings. As I strive for realism to achieve actualization, each one of my works takes on both appearance and message. The inspiration for the quest is by grace, the outcome a gift, and the process is gratitude. The finished work reverberates with a multitude of strokes — each in memory of my beloved. I hope you will enjoy my conversations with God.” O.M. Braida
