Julie Rogers Mormon Artist

Julie Boswell Rogers is an artist whose work focuses on historical figures and pioneers, primarily from the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, of which she is a member.

Rogers grew up in Goshen, Utah, and started drawing in kindergarten and painting in sixth grade. She studied fine art at Brigham Young University and graduated in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree. She also served a full-time mission.

Rogers felt compelled to paint Emma Hale Smith and began to research her life, determined to depict her faith and personality. Her research took a couple of years. To complete the project, she went back and forth between the portrait of Emma (All Things Dear) and a portrait of Joseph Smith. She finally included a portrait of the two of them together (Eternally Bound). They were completed in 2010.
