Brendan is currently a Fine Arts major at BYU-Idaho. He is on full academic scholarship and applies his artistic skills to express his passionate love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is especially fond of portraiture work where he can share the Savior’s Image as it shines through the countenance of others.
Brendan was blessed with the wonderful opportunity to share the Lord’s message of salvation and exaltation to the people in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area.
It is Brendan’s desire to use his voice, his service and his art to help bring souls unto Christ.
Brendan felt very impressed to create a portraiture of President Monson. In the early stages, he found himself getting distracted and pulled away from the work. However, The Spirit whispered, “Do the portrait. Do the portrait.”
Since the piece has been completed, a long list of “circumstances” emerged and Brendan was blessed with the opportunity to personally present the original to President Monson.
