About the Author

Greg Olsen

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.”

This is a happy memory for me as I had a Nativity much like this when I was in my later years of primary. As I am now 62 years of age, I am thrilled to again own a nativity like this. This nativity is SO BEAUTIFULLY done. The details are breathtaking. Thank you for helping to bring back happy memories of my growing up years. And thank you for showing love for our Savior in such a beautiful way.

I had one of these as a child, someone gave each of the kids one. I loved mine and put it up under the tree every year! I’m getting this one for primary.

Outstanding Dioramas

I started out buying five of these, one for each of my kids children and one myself. I am so pleased that yesterday I purchased ten more for friends. Today I ordered five more for giving as I look at mine and enjoy it so very much Wanting to share with some to perhaps open a scripture discussion with a few folks I love. That said I want to state that the beauty of these just brings a joy to my heart. The Christ child, with Mary and Joseph are highly visible in the back ground while those that came to worship Him are displayed in two separate outer sheets. The details are superb, those worshipping have their hands looking down a bit as if in great respect and the awe and wonder of it all. All are made displaying beauty and reverence and a wonderful reminder of what Christmas is truly about. I got the smaller size but it is a perfect size for a tabletop. I am hoping my grandchildren and friends will begin a new family tradition by putting them up each season as a visible and true reminder of whom we worship not only at Christmas but each and everyday. I deeply recommend them as both family gifts and missionary tools. That said, Merry Christmas to you all!. Sincerely, Wayne Wright, northern Wyoming.

My Heart is Dancing!

I received one of these as a young girls way too long ago. I have treasured it but been saddened because it has seen a lot of use. I was elated and my heart started dancing when I saw this at Deseret Book. It's absolutely beautiful and I love it! Thanks for this amazing product.

I love Greg Olsen art and was very excited to see this diorama and promptly ordered a lot of them to use as Christmas cards. Now when they came, I regret my large order. The shepherds are looking down at the ground, and Mary, Joseph and the Christ Child are too far behind them. Two layers instead of three, or better arrangement of the figures would make this more attractive and believable. I am disappointed.

Thank You!

Thank you Deseret Book for listening and making these available. You really do listen to your customers. I was elated when I saw these in the store yesterday. They are BEAUTIFUL and I love Greg Olsens real to life art.
As for listening to your customers you rock! One of your buyers a while back asked on a missionary moms facebook post what we would like to have that was not available at your store. I related my story of being in primary as a little girl and getting a nativity that folded flat. (yes that dates me and you because you remember them as well) I was looking for something like that to send to my foreign missionaries to keep the cost down but to no avail. So imagine my surprise as I saw these on display yesterday. CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY! Not only did you hear me but you provided two sizes a large nativity and a small nativity along with Envelopes to mail them in and affordable! Our current current missionary is not foreign but she will be getting one of these nativities for sure.
I can't say it enough Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
If your on my Christmas list, no peeking. 😉🎄
