Nature has always spoken to Charity and growing up along the Logan River and the slopes of the Wellsville Mountains in Utah helped cultivate her love for the outdoors.
While attending university, her life changed with the introduction of oil painting. She quickly became captivated with the medium and found mixing the smooth oil paint “exhilarating.” Soon after being introduced to oils, Charity took her first plein air class and was delighted in the experience of merging her two passions; nature and painting. Today she continues to regularly paint on location, observing nature and recording her experiences through oil paint.
Charity graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Brigham Young University-Idaho in 2015. One year later, she moved to Northern California and enjoyed capturing the diverse landscape on the west coast. In the fall of 2020 she returned to her hometown in Northern Utah, where she currently spends time painting the backcountry in the mountains and the stretching farmland.
