Visitors to the Conference Center in Salt Lake City will see 11 new paintings of courageous women from the scriptures on the west side of the plaza level. The oil paintings are the works of artist Kathleen Peterson, who lives on an 80-acre farm with her husband in central Utah’s rural Spring City. Peterson, the mother of four grown children and a grandmother, paints in her home studio.
Eve (Moses 2-4): “Once they came out of the garden I think their life was changed forever because they had children,” said Peterson.
Miriam and the pharaoh’s daughter (Exodus 2:2-10): “That was kind of a fun one,” Peterson quipped.
