Eva Magill-Oliver is a visual artist creating delicate, meditative collages, drawings, and paintings that reflect and explore different elements of the natural world.
Currently living and working in Greenville, South Carolina, Magill-Oliver received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia in Athens. She worked as an in-house artist and designer at a publishing company in Atlanta before pursuing a career as an independent artist. She is the author of Paint Alchemy: Exploring Process-Driven Techniques through Design, Pattern, Color, Abstraction, Acrylic, and Mixed Media, published by Quarry Books in 2018.
While she has worked primarily on paper over the past several years, Magill-Olliver has recently expanded her work to include mixed media abstract paintings on canvas. In March 2019, Nike announced its partnership with Magill-Oliver, whose artwork was chosen to be featured on a new collection of running apparel and accessories for women. She intends for this collection to connect runners with the environment around them. The result is a dynamic collection of printed patterns in fluid brushstrokes invoking plant life, the flow of water, and the horizon, helping to calm the mind.
