About the Artist Michael Olsen

Fascinated by the beauty in nature, especially birds and butterflies as a boy, Michael Olsen has continued to adore the simple things in life, particularly the outdoors, cycling, listening to vinyl records, spending time with family, friends or quietly contemplating his love of life by himself.

Having spent most of his working life as a retailer and dabbling in arts and crafts as a hobbyist – Michael now retired is super happy to be producing the most exquisite lepidopterological artwork. His awe-inspiring pieces featuring his representation, of often hundreds of the most beautiful butterflies, merging delicate hand painting, feathers and acrylic paint, his ‘display cases’ are extremely gratifying to behold. Michael’s work was inspired by Victorian butterfly domes, which he has brought up to date with a contemporary retro-modern feel, bright and cheerful, his displays lure you in to take a closer look, one could never tire of exploring each wonderful creation, but when distracted to look away you always leave visually stimulated, wanting to come back for more and finding something new each time.
