I would like to share this short explanation of how Olga Osnach came up with the name Madre Olius and how she started working in polymer clay.
"Madre Olius - it means Mother Olius (I was called this by the person very close to our family. This person has the same name as our child). I started my polyclayer career after of the birth of my son. It that time I was interested in Spanish. That is why "Mother" became"Madre". Honestly, I'm very thankful to my son, because before his birth I was pretty sure that I was not talented, that I was a mediocre artist when it came to drawing. For example, It is difficult for me to draw portraits, or faces in generaly, but when I work in three dimensions it made a big difference."
Olga is one on the artist who will be presenting work at the Chameleon Show and will also be giving a demonstration at Horizons where participates will have chance to see how she works her magic creating the faces of elves and goblins.
