Linda Curley Christensen

The podcast hits the road where we were able to tour the studio of Linda Curley Christensen, perhaps the most prolific of any Church-commissioned artist. She has painted the murals for nearly every temple since 2000 and her landscape works can be found in the Conference Center and in Church publications across the world. Her enormous mural studio in Wallsburg, UT was the site for our interview where we got to witness her team prepping, painting, and restoring murals for at least three LDS temples. 

 Though we couldn't photograph the murals being worked on in Christensen's studio, it was inspiring to see the menage of photos and reference materials being used by artists to paint accurate depictions of gardens in the Holy Land for the Vernal Temple.

 Before beginning a mural, Christensen produces scale models, affixed to foam core to present to the relevant authorities to help mock up a version of each room for the proposed temple.
