About the Artist
A native of Galway and living in Rosses Point,
Co. Sligo, for many years, Olive Bödeker is a
representational artist whose work is constantly
in demand. Living right on the Atlantic Coast
she is always inspired by its ever changing
moods and light, which are clearly visible in her
meticulous work. Her relentless fascination with
beach and landscapes has become the
hallmark of her work.
Olive's oil paintings form part of many corporate
and private collections across the globe. Her
most recent success occurred when her painting
of "Classiebawn" was presented to HRH Prince
Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Olive has shown her work in many solo and joint
exhibitions in Ireland, North and South, as well
as in Germany. She is also a founding member
of ArtbyNorthWest, a cross-border art initiative.
