Multi-disciplinary Visual Artist + Producer: Drawing. Photography. Video.
Olivia Evans is a grant-awarded, multidisciplinary visual artist and producer based in Spokane, WA. Working in video, photography, drawing, film, and beadwork, her work is heavily influenced by motherhood, nature, the subconscious, and personal experiences - intertwining traditional and digital media to create narratives of the self. All these influences echo her eclectic cultural background of growing up as a Black, Italian, and Native woman. She boasts a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art, and a minor in Film from Eastern Washington University, and graduated with the Dean’s Excellence Award. As a producer and social media manager for the Alliance for Media Arts + Culture, an arts non-profit, she continues to elevate marginalized communities in film & art through Social Media posts, workshops, and Documentary Film events. As a Marketing & Communications Coordinator for Spokane Regional Domestic Violence Coalition, on a community-regional level, she aids to empower victims of Domestic Violence through visibility on social media, marketing materials, and as an advocate at events, such as Community Partnered Events, MMIW Campaign, PCN, and Purple for a Purpose. Her work has been featured in several exhibitions, for instance, Spokane Art’s SATURATE, Terrain 12 & 13, INT’L All Media Exhibition ‘22, Land Acknowledgement exhibition ‘22, and as a co-curator at the GU Urban Arts Center for “Home: Imagining the Irrevocable.” She has also been featured on KXLY. Today, she continues to expand her art practice in many facets, such as creating her business Mama Wolf Media, LLC, grant reviewing/writing/ panels, adjunct teaching, and film festival panels.
