Hello and welcome to scott olson fine art!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I’m looking forward to a wonderful and busy 2022. And I need to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out to make 2021 such a successful year, especially with all of the re-scheduling and the difficulties we all went through.

Most events should be back on the schedule for this year, and with luck, I’ll be participating in as many as I can. I have the winter shows up on the calendar, and I’ll be updating that as I get an idea of the spring and summer. If you aren’t already, please follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram at Scott Olson Fine Art. It’s a good way to see photos of work before I can post them here. It’s also a good way to get information about shows, including last minute updates/changes.

I apologize for not having the gallery updated on the website. I have been busy this winter getting work ready for the upcoming shows, and I’m hoping that once we’re settled in down south, I’ll have a chance to post work that’s current and available.

Thanks again and I hope to see you at an event this year!


Hello and welcome to my website! I am Scott Olson and I have been a professionally working artist for over 25 years.

In 1995 I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with a Master of Fine Arts degree. In 2000, I started kompression graphics corp. in Chicago, and am now splitting my time between Chicago and the small lake community of Williams Bay, Wisconsin.

Most of my work is created with a combination of various media, including oil paint, watercolor, printmaking (mono print and dry-point), pencil, and collage. I consider the works to be contemporary explorations of traditional themes, including still life and landscape. The work is characterized by bold, colorful shapes and soft, nuanced textures.

If you are interested in purchasing work, please contact me. I do not sell directly from the website, but I will be happy to assist you through email in making a purchase.

Thank you for visiting and for your interest in my work! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.



Not so much a blog as a what’s-going-on page. If anything of interest is happening with scott olson fine art, or my life in general, I’ll update it here!


Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the work you see here, upcoming events, or just questions in general.
