About the Author
The art of Greg Olsen illuminates the soul and spirit of its subjects and uplifts the hearts and minds of its viewers. Olsen’s diverse interests are deftly demonstrated in oil paintings that range from the realistic and historical to the whimsical. His luminous, delicate portraits capture not only his subject’s likeness, but their spirit as well. Landscapes of scenes from America and the world over reflect the perfect beauty of the minds eye.
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.
Greg’s philosophy on art is quite simple. “I appreciate the beauty of art and the way it makes me feel,” he says. “I believe that art has the potential to heal our souls, inspire our hearts and awaken our minds. I hope these images will bring this experience to all who view them.”

I bought this pack and hole punched each card; then I put them all on a ring and my kids look at them during sacrament-great little activity for them and definitely worth the buy!
