Oliver’s first art book, “Drawing the Head for Artists” was published by the Rockport publisher in 2019 and two of his portraits were commissioned and featured on the cover of the Time Magazine as part of their "100 Women of the Year" project, March 2020 issue. Streamline Publishing published my first educational step-by-step DVD, "Portrait Drawing Simplified, " in April 2022. Vine charcoal portrait drawing of his dad won First Place in Drawing at the Portrait Society of America International Art Competition in 2021.
