Lenina Olivas was born in Southern California, moved to Colorado where she received her MA in Political Science from the University of Colorado in 2010.
Lenina Olivas has exhibited her work along the Colorado Front Range with her home studio located in Loveland, Colorado.
Her work has been reviewed in Professional Artists Magazine, Sip on Life, and is currently on display in the Colorado State Capitol.
She has been a featured guest on The Reset Podcast with Franklin Taggart, the We Podcast Series #43 by Sarah Monares, and The More You NoCo.
She is actively involved in her community, adopted a highway in Loveland, and is a member of The Artist Collective.
Prior to becoming an artist, she was a figure model and worked with a variety of artists in the surrounding states.
Lenina felt that being a model helped her to connect with artists, find the right art instructor, and understand the art world.
Lenina didn’t set out to become an artist but she was called to it by the beautification and joy it brought to her life.
