Best of Jury: Joni Olsen
Fine Artist Joni Olsen lives in Bend, Oregon. Her originalhand drawn work is done in pen and ink, water color is added, and then scannedinto a computer. Her pieces are finished digitally and printed as photos,giclees, or on various mediums, such as recycled bags for usable art.
Her surrealist style often features nature. She says that“No two people ever see the same things in my pieces, but most everyone canrecognize some type of emotion in them. Anger, happiness, laughter, intense,spiritual, calming, peace, tranquility, some will even take you on a journeywhere only your mind can go.”
