Born in 1990, British artist Olivia Kemp trained first at Winchester School of Art, and then at both Wimbledon College of Art and the Royal Drawing School. A draughtswoman of prodigious talent, she creates meticulous and richly drawn surfaces, whose minute details are handled with an assurance which belies the artist’s age.
