Artist Statement – “Moving to Sonoma County 20 years ago opened up my vision to the beauty of nature. The natural environment, the colors, the forest, the ocean coastline are all inspirations to a visual person. I am drawn to the printmaking process and its complexity where the skill of the hand and eye combine to cut blocks. Through the art of printing I try to produce images of the fullness of nature.”

Biography: A California native, Rik Olson received his B.F.A. from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. He has studied under such masters as Barry Moser, John DePol, Richard McLean, and Ralph Borge. He has lived, studied and exhibited in Italy, Germany and the U.S. His influences include the years he lived in Europe and currently the beautiful countryside of Sonoma County, California. He enjoys pushing the envelope in printmaking and has recently been working on editions of multi-color linoleum cut prints. He recently took part in a fund raising event where the works of ten artists, whose over-size prints were printed by an actual steamroller, were featured.

Rik and his wife, Brita, live in rural West County with their two dogs and goldfish. He also participates in Art Trails, the annual artist open studio event in Sonoma County and invites you to visit his studio. For more details, please call Rik at (707) 874-1299. Website:
