Lonnie Ollivierre is an Atlanta based illustrator who was born in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. There, he first experienced the world of art via his father who was a sign painter. As a child, his family relocated to Brooklyn where he taught himself to paint from comic books he collected. As he grew up, he dreamed of becoming a cartoonist, and later a painter after studying Norman Rockwell. He paints the things that he sees in his everyday life, with his family and friends being the source of his work through which he hopes to inspire, educate, and uplift others.
