Joze Olvera is an Edmonton based mixed media artist, a wife, a mother of three, a Registered Nurse, and a continuing work in progress. 

Born in the Netherlands, Joze was inspired by her artistic mother. Creative projects took over the majority of her childhood time. Pencils, crayons, paint, glue, paper, fabrics and scissors, there were no limits to what these materials could create. 

Although she always dreamt of working as an artist, as a young adult she decided to pursue a more "dependable" career path. After 10 years of a dry spell with other priorities on the go, Joze finally decided to answer her artistic calling. 

Fully motivated, Joze started taking a more serious approach in pursuing her art career.  Joze began gaining professional instruction and taking art workshops of interest. In 2013, for the first time, Joze participated in art shows. Since then Joze has had the opportunity to display her art in numerous juried exhibitions, has recently had her first gallery showing, and has acquired art collectors locally as well as internationally.
