When I stand before a blank canvas, I feel as if I’m in a cocoon, lost, with visions to be released only as my fantasies take shape in the oil. Sometimes I feel I’m inside the picture, painting the scene around me, expressing my feelings and fantasies about flowers, trees, birds, animals, peace, femininity, love, nature and people. My mind races at every brush stroke, making decisions . . . every single leaf is important . . . my emotions surge.
It is still difficult to let a painting go. But I have come to understand that, if someone takes my art into their home, the life I’ve given to my dream is shared and thereby expanded. After viewing my gallery, if any of my oils are of interest, you may easily reach me using the email address here or the contact form at the end.

Oleda Begins to Paint At Age 38
At age 38, still modeling for Wilhelmina Model Agency in NYC and writing her early beauty/health books, Oleda developed an inexplicable, strong desire to put her feelings on canvas. So, one day she simply walked into one of New York City’s art supply stores and purchased everything in sight in order to get started. She had never had a brush in her hand, nor had she ever had a lesson in Art–and to this day still has not–but somehow she knew she just had to paint. It was then that she discovered she had an uncanny, innate talent for it.
Oleda’s art has been exhibited at the Museum of Florida Art, Deland, FL, (19 oil paintings), Wichita Art Association Museum. (30 oil paintings) and was the guest speaker at the museum’s members’ only dinner. Her paintings have hung in galleries in New York City and Florida.
DON’T WANT TO PAY FOR AN ORIGINAL PAINTING? You can order a *Giclee
A *Giclée reproduction, individually enhanced by the artist, can be ordered for most paintings at approximately one-third the price of an original oil. *A giclée (zhee-CLAY) is an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity exact reproduction done on a special large format printer. Oleda giclées are made on museum quality canvas, and then enhanced by the artist, producing a one-of-a-kind copy of the original. The canvas is shipped rolled in a tube, suitable for stretching and hanging. Allow 30 days for reproduction and enhancement.
