Olivia McLeod is a Colorado native who has always had a passion for drawing and art. She attended Denver School of the Arts as a Visual Arts (VA) major for middle school, and was a part of the Pomona Arts and Humanities (PAH) program at Pomona High School. After that she attended University of Colorado Denver, where she received her BFA in Illustration. From the age of nine and through her sophomore year of high school she took private art lessons from Ken Walker, who along with her parents taught her to always chase what makes you happy.
Growing up she wanted to be a cowgirl, or an artist; although she has since changed her opinions on being a cowgirl, art and creativity has remained her main passion. As she got older, while still remaining young at heart, her passions turned to include childcare as well. She is currently on the path towards a Masters program to teach elementary art, as well as becoming a children's book illustrator.
