Each piece stems from personal experiences,
Olmstead attaches these experiences to a song or piece of music. With synesthesia she sees color when she
hears music. She paints the colors and movements that are swirling in her mind, combined with the emotion of the chosen memory or experience. Olmstead paints the mood of these combined elements. Wrestling with each concept, she is determined to find beauty and peace in each experience. It is with those guiding metrics that she sifts through sound, synesthesia, memories, social pitfalls, human experiences, and more as she seeks to infuse light and guiding peace into these spaces. Olmstead views
her works as tokens, or icons meant to bless and serve as reminders for viewers and collectors.
