My Darling Charmaine
Do you remember that magical moment?
It’s similar to falling in love, or hearing a song you know will mark the soundtrack of your life.
Discovering your favourite artist.
A savoury experience undefinable by any one emotion. You feel as if the universe found it just for you and placed it in your wake.
A moment to cherish.
That moment happened to me not to long ago in my west end village of Vancouver BC. I was visiting the local art store when I saw her.
Her name as Ophelia and she was beautiful, strong and unlike another.
I asked the owner of the store to tell me the artists name. Charmaine Olivia he said. The perfect name for a new found obsession, and I was hooked.
Upon arriving back at my apartment I began my search. Image by image I fell in love with her work.
It had happened to me, and it was epic.
Ophelia now hangs in my office, a reminder of that excitement that the world sometimes brings you when you least expect it. Since being introduced to Charmaine Olivia’s work I have also been introduced to many other artists, the my life has gained a little more sparkle.
