Ciao e Benvenuto!
We are lifelong art lovers, lovers and artists with over a century of combined art careers. As California natives we can often be found outdoors painting colorful San Francisco cityscapes or the crisp clean light of the Napa Valley. When not working in our Bay Area studios or chasing our three granddaughters around, we're in Italy where we spend a good part of each year painting the luminous canals of Venice, sun-kissed landscapes of Tuscany, and wherever else our adventures lead us. We love to paint and paint to love so we hope you enjoy our life's work as much as we do.
Grazie e vi auguriamo tutto il meglio,
-Virginia & Arvid Olson
