Ollie and her husband moved to San Diego about 1915, and she received some art instruction from Alfred R. Mitchell in this city. Specializing in still-life and flower pieces, Ollie exhibited one of these at the California Pacific International Exposition in 1935. After the exposition, she maintained a studio in the Spanish Village, where she was a member of Los SURENOS Art Center. A member of the San Diego Art Guild, she frequently exhibited in the 1930s and 1940s.
