Ursula Olsson has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from California State University, Long Beach.  She also also attended Bongart School of Fine Art in Santa Monica where she studied under Sergei Bongart, a master of Russian Impressionism.  Ursula is fascinated by colors, shadows and lines in the landscape where the hues and shadows are constantly changing with the position of the sun. She also enjoys painting still lifes in the more controlled environment of her studio.  Always her paintings are not mirrors of reality but rather her impression of the reality she sees before her.
