The Art of Dinosaur Designs

The Art of Dinosaur Designs

Exhibition

Thursday, March 29, 2018 10:00am - 5:00pm

About

Dinosaur Designs grew very naturally, very organically for Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy. It's a philosophy of colour and form. Working with resin is like working with paint and that's where Steve and Louise both started, as students working in a studio at art school. Every piece made is crafted by hand in Australia, passing through many pairs of hands in the process, giving each piece the slight differences that make it unique.
