Brenda has studied with master teach Floyd Breinholt. She combines oil painting techniques with fluid art. Brenda loves painting portraits, landscapes and more traditional art. Brenda says “Painting is an almost spiritual part of my life, inspired by the world around me, the scriptures, and people who touch my life. I hope to convey that through each of my paintings.”
Jane grew up without a clue that she was born to be an artist. It wasn’t until her junior year in high school that she took her first art class, she did her best and found the process thoroughly enjoyable. She wants her art to be collected and treasured by those who seek beauty, peace and fulfillment from the visual images they surround themselves with.

It is a great blessing for me to be featured again with the Inspirational Art Association. A gift that began 15 years ago this year, Jason has seen some of the greatest blessings in his life from photographing the House of the Lord. He has traveled and have photographed just over 40 U.S. Temples. Photographing these temples, he has seen some of the most beautiful workmanship from the skilled trades. Although each temple is uniquely different, they teach the exact same message. Jason lives in Chandler, Arizona with his wife Kirsten. They have three children Preston, Olivia, and Nora.
Nancy has been painting since a child and received a BFA in painting from BYU, she also has a post-baccalaureate certificate from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The focus of her work is on color where she makes her own paint in order to increase the chroma of her paintings. She has traveled to England to learn about traditional icon painting. All paintings are made using traditional icon painting techniques established in the 13th century. All materials are natural and true to what was available at the time. Each panel is handmade by an iconographer. All paint is handmade using natural pigments.
Michael Peterson is an original, an artist whose signature style is painted layered glass sculptures. As an award-winning exhibit designer and an artist, he is combining his love and skills for oil painting with his love and skills for contemporary three-dimensional design into a truly unique style of sculpture. His sculptures have the look of being painted in oil paints with the depth and distance of a sculpture that can be free-standing or wall hanging. He developed his unique art form this year and it has become his signature style. The way he describes it is: “I paint fascination in 3-D. The mission of my art is simple: Pull the viewer into a world that is three-dimensional, fascinating and beautiful.”
Mike would love to create something special for your home or office.
Ken began painting at the age of 14 and eventually studied illustration at Utah State University. In his early career he lived on the East Coast and worked as an illustrator, then transitioned to fine art painting in the late 1990’s. He has traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe to paint on location.
I paint with emotion to express visual music. Color harmonies are my notes. I paint not only to tell a story, but also to create music and poetry on the canvas. The lyrics are light dancing across the form of a beautiful floral, the graceful gesture of a dancer, a fleeting moment in the life of another, or the emotion of a landscape whether quiet or dramatic. I believe a painting should not only evoke a mood, it must sing!
Barbara Ward is originally fro Alberta Canada, where she grew up on the prairies. She enjoyed exploring the rural countryside on her horse. While doing this, she developed a love of the outdoors. This feeling, she hopes is portrayed in her landscape paintings, or her “sacred spaces.”
