Olin has been working as an artist for over twenty-five years and has received many honors and awards, including induction into the National Association of Women Artists at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2008. Her pieces are intuitive photographs of women and nature that are expressive, subtly shaded, and evocative of the time and place in which they were made.
Olin’s photographs have been consistently exhibited throughout the United Sates and Europe. Her work has been featured in numerous photography and fine-art galleries, museums and universities, and reside in private and public collections.
Photography is my passion. Whatever the subject, a spiritual quality beckons, at first shyly, barely noticeable, but over time more strongly, demanding exploration; by using a variety of mediums from gelatin silver to rich platinum, I’m able to respond to each photograph in a unique way, honoring equally the image and my intuition.
If I’m lucky, my photographs reveal that spiritual quality, that essence, that energy of the moment, to me while working and later to the viewer.
