Olivia Holland


Olivia Holland is a professional ballet dancer, dance teacher and artist.


I first interviewed Olivia Holland in 2014, when she was a dancer with Northern Ballet. She was more than happy to tell me about her life as a professional ballet dancer and share news about the success of her artwork.

Olivia embarked on a brand new adventure in 2015 and this justified a second interview. She is now living in New Zealand, teaching dance for various studios and still creating her uniquely painted watercolours of dancers.

Olivia’s artwork has been featured in Vogue and she is increasingly in demand to create bespoke pieces.

Having enjoyed working with Olivia to share her story, I am privileged to have been included among the dancers Olivia has captured with her paintbrush.
