Olivia Daane Reische received a B.A. from Vanderbilt University in 1992 majoring in 16th century English Literature with a minor in Studio Art. She continued her emphasis on painting with color and the written word in Florence, Italy with studio work through Syracuse University. Following these studies, she apprenticed for internationally recognized artist Paul Harmon. She began exhibiting her own work in 1994 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Aspen, Colorado became her home base in 1997 where she continues to reside with her husband Eric Reische and 11 year old daughter Ki-lin and 3 year old son Daane. In June of 2006, she opened her working studio at the base of Aspen Highlands mountain. The LIVASPENART WORKING STUDIO presents her own work in progress along with a rotation of local artists in residence. With the LIVASPENART WORKING STUDIO, she has given the Aspen audience the unique opportunity to interact with the artist and view contemporary works in progress. In February 2011, she opened LIVASPENART GALLERY, a contemporary gallery in downtown Aspen on the Cooper Avenue walking mall. The gallery's mission is to expose the Aspen audience to emerging, contemporary artists from the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond who are just receiving national and international recognition. Each exhibition will be accompanied by the LIVASPENART Contemporary Artist Lecture Series beginning June 16, 2011.
