Olga Guy is a watercolors artist who specializes in subjects of nature. The use of vibrant colors on her semi-spontaneous style paintings stir the pride of owning an original piece of work.
Born in Honduras in 1979, Olga is the second daughter of Clementina Herrera, (a native Honduran) and Mario Guy (from The Philippines). She took an interest in art at an early age. After earning a degree in computer programming she relocated to London in 2001 and later to Malawi in 2003 where she worked with orphans creating art.
Between 2004 and 2008 she moved to Mexico, to run her father’s business, after his sudden death. During this period, this now young entrepreneur invested her very little free time to paint, to study photography and to travel around the southern mexican area. Olga made Panama City, Florida her home in 2009 where the beauty of St Andrews Bay and the marine life became a vital part of her inspiration.
In 2013 she joined Panama City Artists Association. When she discovered that supporting and promoting local artists was very important to the Bay County Community, Olga decided to help with this cause and she served as the Public Relations Representative for the association. The same year she started her own business: Olga Guy Art and Photography LLC and joined CityArts Cooperative. Where later she was given the position of Public Relations Manager.
Olga has participated in numerous exhibits in the State of Florida. Her artwork has been displayed in most of the art venues, in the county. Her watercolors can also be found sometimes in The government building, the tourist center and the public library. Her paintings “Tropical Aquarium” , “Clown Fish” and “Sea Turtle” won the 1st place in the watercolor category at the Bay County Fair Art Show in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Olga Guy currently dedicates her full time to create exquisite watercolor paintings and teaches art lessons at her private studio. Her spare time is allocated to continue with her philanthropic activities to help promote the local art and artists.
