Ole has lived in Bayfield County, Wisconsin all of his life. He began studying and painting with a local art therapist at the age of twelve. Painting has helped Ole focus, concentrate, relax and release his creative energy. He enjoys the colors he paints with and sometimes creates a piece for someone special.
Ole’s art work expresses to others how he views the world. His paintings are vibrant with color, texture and movement. Ole has exhibited his work in many venues including Rivers Eatery in Cable, Washburn Cultural Center, Black Cat Cafe in Ashland, an Art Festival in Madison and the Disability Rights–Wisconsin offices.
In addition to art, Ole loves jazz and rock ‘n roll, nature, going for walks, bird watching and gardening. In the summer of 2014 Ole was honored with the title “Social Butterfly” at the Easter Seals Camp in the Wisconsin Dells.
