Olivia: A young artist with a passion to help animals
“You're never to young or too old to make a difference.” - Olivia Pedrick
Meet Olivia, a ten-year-old artist with a purpose. With close to eighty painted pet portraits completed, she has already made a big difference in her community and the lives of animals. A portion of the proceeds from each portrait she creates is donated to a local animal rescue or rehabilitation center. “ It makes me feel good and creative. It makes me feel like I am helping animals in the best way I can. I feel like I make a difference.”
Olivia and her mom are making a big impact with each organization they choose to support. “We dedicate three months to each organization we donate to, and we remind Olivia’s fans where their donation is going when they commission a painting.” Her paintings have garnered her a large following, bringing attention to her passion, the welfare of animals.
