Born in Moscow, Olga Zwart moved to Perth at the age of 13. She holds a degree in Design from Curtin University, majoring in Graphic Design and Photography. After more than 15 years as a commercial photographer in North America, Olga moved back to Perth and discovered tufting. Once she learned the techniques, she was absorbed into the world of design using wool as a means of painting and sculpting her artwork. She is excited to start teaching the technique as well as promoting art as a pathway to wellbeing and self-discovery.
