What We Are About

Make my Mark is a shared marketplace for a small collective of professional artists.
We have sourced a variety of quality white-label products where our original artwork may be showcased. You will find that each shop reveals the artist's aesthetic and products are chosen by the artists to best suit their work. When you buy from this online shop, you are actively supporting our individual art practices.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our shop, but please also follow and support the artists on their social media (links in the bios below).

Jonny Olsen

Jonny Olsen is a Canadian artist who strives to embody colour and movement in all his artworks. He calls this style 'decorative movemetism'. Within this style Jonny uses many themes such as cityscapes, abstract, landscapes and realism. Jonny's unique art first became known when he had an ongoing exhibit at a little bar in downtown Ottawa called the Elbow Room, but he eventually became even more known when his murals starting popping up in various downtown Ottawa locations. While Jonny has his degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Waterloo, he spent every elective in the Fine Arts building learning how to perfect his painting talent. Jonny lives in Ottawa and performs with his well known group Junkyard Symphony, but when he is not performing, he is painting or undertaking an artistic project of some sort. Jonny's favourite subject to paint is cityscapes, but he loves many styles and is available for commissioned work so have a look through his portfolio and enjoy! You may also follow him on Instagram
