Mirta Oliva
An artist at heart since childhood, I had to put aside my artistic calling for a career in banking. The latter was followed by the opening of an antique store "Antiques are Forever," now inactive. Finally, I was able to resume painting (realistic, abstract, comic) and eventually writing (books, anecdotes, essays, poems) - a creative combination that gave way to my publishing my first book, the tale of two paper birds BIRDYJOSH and BIRDYLU, a Paper Birds' Story. At this moment I am working on odds and ends, writings and paintings, plus editing a General Fiction novel.
