ROBYNN OLSON is a Saskatoon based artist and has been creating and selling works of art for seven years. Six of those years she focused on acrylic landscapes and in the last couple months she has switched over to oil landscapes. The vibrancy and slow drying time drew Robynn to explore in oil paints and once she started she could not turn back! Using large brush strokes and focusing on simple shapes, a recognizable scene comes to life. Using the full spectrum of the colour wheel is also important when she explores a landscape.
PEAKS + PRAIRIES has been the theme of the last 5 shows at Calories Restaurant because it is exactly what Robynn loves to paint. “Places I want to go and places I have been: that is what I want displayed in my home and I hope others want the same! I see beauty in the world and desire to paint it – not in the reality we see it, but in a more vibrant, hyperreal, joyful way.”
Robynn’s hope is recreate your memories and dreams using paint on canvas.
Her husband and two young boys are gracious to accommodate her studio which is set up in their living room. Robynn enjoys the challenge and freedom of painting in her home while her boys play alongside her.
