Notes

Eleanor Quist Costello Olson was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, surrounded by nature, dogs, and women. Olson’s mothers instilled a love of art from a young age, and by 12-years-old they knew they wanted to pursue a career in painting. Eleanor Olson recently graduated in the Rhode Island School of Design Class of 2020 with a BFA in Painting and concentrations in Race, Gender, and Sexuality; and Nature, Culture, and Sustainability. 

In January, 2019 Eleanor spent a month camping around Guyana with a small group of peers. While there, they studied biodiversity and conservation, focusing on cataloguing beetle coloration. During fall of 2019, Eleanor spent four months in RISD’s residency style study abroad program in Rome. There, Eleanor painted a mural at I Gatti di Torre Argentina, built an installation in Palazzo Cenci, and created many paintings and drawings. Currently, Eleanor lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island with their partner, snake, and cat.
