About The Artist

Artisan Backgrounds are inspired by the amazing backgrounds created by food stylist and photographer Olimpia Davies.

Olimpia Davies originally graduated as a geologist but her real passion has always been food and photography. She loved working in an environmental laboratory, she just loved food that bit more and in 2011 she started writing her own culinary blog. Olimpia discovered a real talent for  food styling and photography.

Food soon became  her number one interest and her eye for composition and colour combined with an exquisite attention to detail won her the 2016 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year Award (Blogger Category). 

Olimpia also won the  Photography Category for the 8th Annual Taste Award in USA,  and  Countrywide Food Photography Competition for professionals 2015 in Poland.  
She captures the natural beauty of food in an extraordinary way evoking feelings and emotions by using natural ingredients, styling and light. 

She’s working in professional photography studio as a stylist and home economist; always searching for new ceramics, fabrics and cutlery.

The need for more and more backgrounds was the beginning of Artisan Backgrounds. She started to paint her own backgrounds on wood and and soon was approached by other bloggers with  commissions for backgrounds.

Olimpia's backgrounds are very unique and multifunctional.  She has now teamed up with DigitalExposure photographic studio to create a range of vinyl backgrounds.
