Mixed media artist Bobbi Oliver, operates Lambo Art Studio from her home in Thornton, NSW AU.
For the last 5 years she has designed and created Art Dolls, from Living Doll polymer clays, and combine these with fabrics/mixed media embellishments creating whimsical collectible Art Dolls. Inspired by viewing Richard Creager, Marlaine Verhelste, Hannie Sarris to name a few Art Doll artist online, Bobbi developed her own designs, techniques to create her sculpted art dolls.
Bobbi started her art career at an early age (age 9) as a painter then introduced to clay in school she proceeded on a journey as a production potter for 30 years in Northern California. Exploring sculpture in clay along the way she received her Bachelors in Studio Art at Humboldt State University in Northern California in ceramic clay arts and Sculpture.

Bobbi has again picked up her paint brushes and is again venturing into the world of paint and mixed media. She also incorporates, paper arts, woodworking, metals, into her sculptures and paintings creating a variety of functional and decorative arts.
“My painting/collage work is all about the colour and contrast, creating designs full of depth, interesting shapes and designs. I am addicted to colour. The challenge to me is to put it all together so it is a pleasing collection of elements that people can’t take their eyes off.”
“My long term goal, is to just keep creating as long as I can!! I love sharing my creations with others and of course I love it when people want to purchase my Art. I hope the desire and ideas never stop.”
