April Featured Artist: David Allred
Posted on 04/04/2018

Born in Salt Lake City, artist David Allred grew up on a dairy farm in the small town of Jameston, a rural community in southeast Idaho.

He attended Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho), and later earned a bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University and a master's degree from Utah State University. Largely self-taught except for a correspondence course and a class at USU, David did not paint his first watercolor until he was a master's candidate at USU.

Since watercolor was the designated medium to accurately portray sets and costumes on stage, David began learning this challenging medium and is still going strong at age 77.

David's paintings and commissions hang in many homes and businesses in Utah and surrounding states, and he has earned several awards and recognition for his work.
