Christine Olson is Venue’s featured artist for the month of April. Christine studied art from a young age, inspired by her mother and grandmother who were both artists. She was formally trained at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and for the last fifteen years she has been working on mastering non-subjective compositions using acrylic on canvas.
Many of Christine’s new paintings focus on meditation. When Christine paints, she works hard to let go of her present feelings and finds her flow through each piece. Balance with color and composition are important for Christine - the pieces can be hung horizontally or vertically because she is constantly rotating the canvas. The art is non-subjective with some natural elements from nature that do appear.
Her current collection offers some smaller sets of paintings as well as larger pieces. Christine also has greeting cards of her current series and limited edition framed giclee prints on archival quality paper. 10% of all of Christine’s art sales will go to support the Melanoma Research Foundation in Washington, D.C.
