Olga Bielma (Alum)

Born 1943, Mexicali, Mexico; died 2012
Practiced at Creative Growth 2002-2012

Olga Bielma made drawings and paintings in response to the images she saw in books and magazines. Her work employed an economical line that brought to mind the formal composition used in publications of botanical studies. Olga transformed her particular chosen subject matter (composers, small animals, hairstyles, fashion designers) by often isolating them on the page and infusing each with color or graphic details that lent a sophisticated, whimsical elegance.
