Michael Olsen is a British premier lepidopterological artists. Formally a retailer Michaels artistic skill developed through making things simply for pleasure or for practical purposes. More recently he has been able to let his artistic impulses develop and what has only ever been a hobby has now become a gratifying venture. His representations of butterflies mix hand-painting with feathers and acrylics to create truly unique and idiosyncratic display pieces.
Olsen’s work brings the beauty of the natural world indoors in a realistic and beautiful way. His pieces are so complexly put together, and created on such a large scale that viewers can look at them every day and still pick out elements and details which they had not previously noticed before.
