Olivia Zisman is a textile artist and designer based in Brooklyn, NY. She has a BA in Art History from Vassar College.

Inspired by her Great Aunt Helen and her band of fearless female friends, Olivia's textile designs are rooted in a world of 1970's kitsch, a love for savory jello molds, and memories of the orange-red lipstick residue left on her cheek after being kissed by a polyester-tracksuit-clad aunt.

This body of work is dedicated to those dynamic ladies who wore head-to-toe purple and gaudy costume jewelry, asserted their opinions loudly, sat and sipped their martinis, and were unequivocally themselves.
