Olivia, Vermont: USA (1993), spent her childhood oscillating from communities off the grid. Spending her formative years raised by two artists in 'The Last Wilderness', a Scottish North Western peninsula. Later Walsh attended school in Central Scotland before joining the Glasgow School of Art. There she was educated initially as a digital practitioner, before radically moving into a bachelor of fine art - concentrating on painting, printmaking and analogue photography. Olivia graduated in 2016 and moved to Berlin where she formed the collective Analogue Berlin. From there she was invited to host her first solo exhibition, installing 28 pieces over a six month period at the Seven Star Gallery, Berlin.
In 2017 Olivia relocated to the US to build her studio on wheels and prepare for her Trumpland photo tour.
