Eva Magill-Oliver is a visual artist currently living and working in Greenville, South Carolina. She received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia in Athens. She worked as an in-house artist and designer at a publishing company in Atlanta before pursuing a career as an independent artist. She is the author of Paint Alchemy: Exploring Process-Driven Techniques through Design, Pattern, Color, Abstraction, Acrylic and Mixed Media, which was published by Quarry Books in 2018. Magill-Oliver creates delicate, meditative collages, drawings and paintings that reflect and explore different elements of the natural world. She has worked primarily on paper over the past several years but has recently expanded her work to include mixed media abstract paintings on canvas.
In March 2019, Nike announced its partnership with Magill-Oliver, whose artwork was chosen to be featured on a new collection of running apparel and accessories for women. Her intention for this collection is to connect runners with the environment around them. The result is a dynamic collection of printed patterns of fluid brushstrokes – which invoke plant life, the flow of water, and the horizon, helping to calm the mind.
