Fan Art Profile Highlight: Olivia Pearce

Fan art comes in all shapes and sizes, and this week’s fan art sure is unique! Olivia Pearce has created her very own Gryffindor common room. By working on it for years she has created details for such items as the fireplace, bookcase, and chessboard. Not only has she created her own common room, but there is also an adjoining dormitory room with her invisibility cloak ready at hand for whenever mischief arises.

Author’s notes: I have worked hard on my room to become as best as it can be to how I picture the Gryffindor common room to look. I painted my walls, re-did the carpet, and decorated every bit of it. It’s kind of hard to pick a favorite piece in my room, but some of my top favorites are my Weasley’s clock, and my invisibility cloak both of which were homemade gifts from family members. I also love my trunk that I have at the end of my bed in which I hold my school robes.

We were also able to ask Olivia a few fandom-related questions.

How long have you been a fan of Harry Potter?

I have been a fan for as long as I can remember. I remember listening to the books on tape every night when they first came out and loving every single one. As I’ve gotten older my love for the Harry Potter books and movies ha[s] grown.

Who is your favorite character within the series?

My favorite character is definitely Ginny. I feel like I can relate to her being the youngest in the family.

Do you have a favorite book/movie in the series?

I never can pick a favorite movie or book out of the series. Every time I read or watch one of them I think, “This is my favorite,” and then I watch or read the next and think the same thing.
