Pronouns: She/They Olivia Gallenberger is a multimedia artist who creates abstract works. She grew up living above her family’s bakery in Oostburg, Wisconsin and spent most of her childhood perched upon stacks of flour bags, playing with blobs of dough and watching her father and grandfather mixing and kneading dough. This taught her the importance of working with one’s hands and the rewards in doing so. Gallenberger graduated in 2018 with a BFA in ceramics and drawing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
They lived in Door County, Wisconsin for two years where they worked as an art instructor, studio assistant, and as the head baker at a local orchard farm market.
