Olaf has been working in the advertising field since 1986. His craftsmanship has been utilized in many different areas. Starting with painting outdoor advertising billboards at Mediacom/Gannette Outdoor Advertising, then moving out to the world of commercial billboards and signage. He was challenged on to painting directly on the exteriors of buildings, as far away as Calgary, Montreal and Toronto.
After the birth of digital computers, billboards were printed, Olaf moved on once again, working with galleries and corporate ventures. He paints in his home and abroad and lives with his wife Tracey in Mississauga, Ontario.
