Olivia Evans is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Spokane, WA, working in video, photography, drawing, and film. In 2018, she graduated from Eastern Washington University with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio art and a minor in film. Her work is heavily influenced by motherhood, the subconscious, and social events — intertwining traditional and digital media to create narratives of the self. All these influences echo her eclectic cultural experiences of growing up in an economically challenged home with an Italian mother and African American/Native American father. Living with her mother and sister for most of her life, till her parents marriage renewal in 2007. Olivia is working with The Alliance for Media, Arts, & Culture as a local producer of the documentary series Monday Movies and co-curates events in the Pacific Northwest region. She actively participates in Alliance National Youth Media Network activities.

As a storyteller, my goal is to connect people with wisdom through the ancient art of story. I tell traditional tales (fairy tales, folk tales, myths, legends, etc.) from my Philippine Culture. I love insights and lessons best when they’re wrapped in funny or poignant stories. I began my storytelling journey when I became a mom and wanted to share my heritage with my children. I have curated artifacts and a library collection of Filipiniana documenting the history of Filipinos and their interactions with the surrounding countries, traders and travelers as far back as the Stone Age.
