North Shore Studio


Since joining the Arts of Life in 2017, Oly Trindl has continued to develop and refine her artistic style. Drawing inspiration from friends and personal photographs, Trindl creates paintings full of rich, velvety hues and varied brush strokes. Monochromatic color schemes transform snapshots of people and places into dynamic pieces bursting with color and movement.

“My motivation is the best when I’m making my pictures. My pieces are getting harder, but I know that I can always do it myself because I’m a focused and very hard worker.”

Trindl engages in art making with deliberate patience and focus, as her natural charisma and congeniality flow through her brush onto the canvas. Each piece beams with warmth and earnest dedication.

“I’m invested into my work and I’m taking my time on the pieces that I’m currently working on. Art tells different countries new ideas and different information about each project that I make.”

In addition to working at the studio, Trindl is also taking a course on “Women and Creativity” at Oakton Community College. A typical lecture course, focusing on reading, writing, and discussion, Trindl enrolled with the intent to try something new and challenging.
