Mormon Artist Kent Christensen draws from an interesting and unique inspiration for his paintings—a variety of candies ranging from Rice Krispies Treats to gummy bears to Pez to stacks of green Jell-O.
In a lush forest of evergreens in the shadow of the majestic Mount Timpanogos,Sundance artist Kent Christensen works in his home studio and finds inspiration from green Jell-O.
"You happened to catch me on the Jell-O day," Christensen says, chuckling.
On a large canvas, he's busy painting a stack of Jell-O cubes.
Christensen once lived exclusively in New York and illustrated articles for national publications like Time magazine, Sports Illustrated, and Business Week. There, some friends knew him as the candy man.
