Born in Odessa, Ukraine, Olga Krimon/Ольгa Кримон received academic art education in Kazan, Russia. She continued to grow and develop her skills later in America, through drawing classes with Glen Orbik and painting classes with Jeremy Lipking.
Olga also holds a BA in Art History, and she credits it with providing her the rich visual vocabulary that is instrumental for defining her path as an artist. She also received an MBA making her well grounded in the business side of an artistic career. Krimon continued to refine her craft through independent studies and daily practice.
Over time, Olga developed her own style grounded in fundamental principles of academic realism, sensitivity to subtle value and color transitions, and yet bold energy of movement and expressive brushstrokes.

Olga’s Figurative and Still life paintings are recognized by the Portrait Society of America (International Competition 3rd Honor Award 2014, Certificates of Excellence 2011 and 2015, Members Only Honorable Mention 2014) and American Art Collector Award of Excellence, Oil Painters of America Western Regional Competition 2014. She is also a finalist in 2015 Art Renewal Center (ARC) International Salon Competition. Olga exhibits with Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, American Women Artists National Shows. Growing up she was (and still is) largely influenced by Repin, Serov, Brullov, Levitan, Kramskoy, Fechin and other Russian titans.
