Pin it Name: Olesya Ianovitch Location: Bywater; New Orleans, Louisiana Size: 785 square feet Years lived in: 1 year; Rented You Are Beautiful.

She describes her whimsical pop art imagery like this: “Close your eyes… Imagine falling in love and indulging on the never-ending kiss, and a life full of true moments of happiness. My paintings speak a romantic language of love…” She views her art, which is heavily influenced by her world travels, as a way to add beauty and cheer to the everyday.
