I was told always to follow your dreams;
 even if you're on the right track you'll get run over if you just sit there.
 

  Lonnie Ollivierre, born in St.Vincent and Grenadines, a small island in the caribbean, where he lived with his father and two sisters. He inherited his love of art from his father, a sign painter who painted houses for a living. At a very young age Ollivierre moved to Brooklyn  to live with his mother. He dreamt of becoming a cartoonist, but a television program on Norman Rockwell compelled the artist to pursue painting as a career.

Discourage by others who assured him he could never make a living as an artist, Ollivierre continued, eschewing art school and taught himself to paint with oil and acrylic. He taught himself to draw from comic books he collected.

"I paint what I see in my everday life," says Ollivierre, "my family and the love of life are my inspiration. I want to inspire, educate and uplift others through my art."

Ollivierre resides in Atlanta, GA.

                                                                 

What a job!

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. A.Vision
