Olivia Kim was born in the Philippines in 1979 and then moved to Rochester, New York at the age of 4.  From early on she pursued interests in dance, vocal music and the visual arts.  She studied techniques in printmaking, glassblowing, woodcarving, bronze-casting and above all ceramics during her studies at the School of Art and Design at Alfred University of Alfred, New York, where she graduated cum laude with Divisional Honors in Ceramic Sculpture.  From 2001-2005 she completed classical training in drawing and sculpting the figure at the Florence Academy of Art.  At the FAA she was a drawing instructor to the sculpture students for one year, and received Prize for Best Sculpture in 2004.  She now lives and works between her home in Rochester, New York and Frassinoro, Italy.  Currently she takes private and public commissions and shows her work in castles and galleries in Ireland, Italy and the US.

Her current work seeks to reveal the neuro-muscular movements of the body.  She believes that the blending of science and art can reveal a fascinating world that embraces scientific truth and presents it in a way that communicates to the artistic soul.
