About the Artist: I believe that most of us have some kind of spiritual belief and we want to embrace those values. I like to think that my paintings might remind people of where they can find their strength and comfort and help reaffirm what's really important in their lives." As a child, Olsen often relied on his imagination for entertainment - as an adult, his imagination entertains us with paintings that depict the best and brightest memories of childhood.

Born in 1958, Olsen was raised in a farming community in rural Idaho. His parents, artists themselves, recognized and encouraged his early love of drawing. Later, the devoted tutelage of a high school teacher cemented his affinity and enhanced his technical ability. After studying illustration at Utah State University, he was hired as an in-house illustrator in Salt Lake City, working on anything from murals and dioramas to simple paste-up. Two years later, he followed a friend's advice and began painting full time. Sales from his first show only just covered the cost of refreshments and invitations, but yielded the first of many commissions that were to come.

His Biblical paintings, represented in religious temples in more than 20 countries around the world, and his work for the Pentagon and the National Collegiate Athletic Association required intensive research and strict attention to factual detail. While these historical paintings satisfy his desire to render works with a sense of permanence, his whimsical paintings afford him the freedom to transfer his imagination to canvas. When Olsen paints a tree house, he paints it the way the children climbing it imagine it to be - the simple boards and nails of reality become elaborate, majestic castles in the sky.

Olsen's paintings are included in many corporate collections, including Mobil Corporation, Turner Broadcasting System, Westin Hotels, World Explorer Cruises and the American Cancer Society, as well as the Pentagon, the U.S. Forest Service and the State of Idaho. His works have been exhibited in prominent art galleries throughout the West and major one-man shows.

Olsen's philosophy on art is quite simple. "For me, I just always appreciated the beauty of art and the way it made me feel," he says. "Art's greatest purpose is just to make us happy. I take a lot of pleasure in painting and hope that pleasure is contagious to those who look at my art."
