AGOG presents Martin Olson “A Brush With Nature”
About The Event
Martin was born in Vernon BC but moved to Golden with his family in 1957. Growing up in Golden was a perfect location to gain an appreciation for the natural world. Martin was encouraged to paint and draw at every opportunity from an early age.
Despite no formal art training, Martin is not technically “self-taught.” He has attended many workshops over the years with accomplished artists such as Randy Hayashi and internationally recognized artists John Poon and Kevin McPherson. Training was in representational art in the studio as well as outdoors on location in both oils and acrylics. Outdoor painting is done with oils but most studio work is completed in acrylic paint.
Martin still calls Golden home and continues to paint the natural beauty of this region.
