Her work is about creating unique objects that have a sense of intrigue, which are inspired by popular culture, the environment around her, and finding interesting ways of using materials.

Olivia’s interests lie in the concept of being able to reuse objects, as some objects take on other more interesting uses that become diverse from their original function, such as her Light Bulb Packaging.
