Jennifer Olson is a representational watercolour artist from Victoria, BC. Her remarkable work combines raw and refined elements to celebrate seemingly ordinary subjects – the worn textures of a weathered building, the shadows of a winter landscape, the golden glow of pears soaked in soft light.
Unique in their strong contrast, quality of light and brilliant luminosity, Jennifer’s original paintings and commissions are held in private and corporate collections across Canada and around the world.
Recognized nationally as a three-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant for representational artwork, Jennifer received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the Alberta College of Art and Design. Jennifer regularly exhibits at juried exhibitions across Vancouver Island and the lower mainland, and was recently recognized as a signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
Along with her artistic achievements, Jennifer is an accomplished custom picture framer and fine art instructor. She delights in sharing techniques and time with her students, balancing the solitude of painting with the community of teaching.
