Stephen Ormandy | Habitus Living

Habitus magazine’s Nicky Lobo takes us inside the home of Olsen Irwin artist Stephen Ormandy. Ormandy shares his home with wife Louise Olsen, cofounder of Dinosaur Designs together with Ormandy, and their daughter Camile. Lobo discusses Ormandy’s return to art after many years focusing on business and design.

“Some might say that Stephen’s recent refocusing on his own art practice is just as bold, but it’s ‘all one expression’ to him. The move is not exactly out of the blue – he is a trained artist deeply connected to the Olsen creative dynasty, which includes his partner, Louise, her brother, gallery owner Tim and their father, John.” – Nicky Lobo, Habitus

Stephen Ormandy | The Design Files

Australia’s premier design blog, The Design Files, have showcased yet another great Australian home, this time taking us behind the scenes of elite members of Sydney’s art and design royalty, Stephen Ormandy and Louise Olsen. As founders of the ever popular Dinosaur Designs, it is no wonder that their home exudes style and finesse.

‘The impressive art collection displayed across almost every wall includes work by Louise’s father, revered Australian artist John Olsen, as well paintings by Stephen himself, whose practice continues to grow and command serious attention in the art world.’ – Lucy Feagins, The Design Files

‘The works are by friends and artists we love, they all have stories and so many memories. My Mum used to say that ‘paintings are like windows’. They do become part of your life’. – Louise Olsen, The Design Files
