Linda Curley Christensen is perhaps the most prolific painter in the LDS Church. Her works have been seen worldwide in LDS temples since she became the primary muralist for these large scale projects nearly two decades ago. From her studio in Wallsburg, Utah, Curley and her team of artists create and restore multiple murals at a time, working from scale models of temples, upscaling them with the most meticulous care. Her landscapes are all created with the same devotion as her murals, but done at a scale designed to suit homes rather than temples.
