Doc Christensen Mormon Artist

Don O. Christensen, known commonly as Doc, is a religious painter. He is possibly best known for his painting “The Portrait of the Prophets.”

He was born in Merced, California, and was raise on his family's dairy farm. Doc, the youngest of four boys, showed an interest in drawing from a very early age. He spent a lot of time entertaining himself drawing and his mother encouraged him. He was introduced at a young age to oil painting.

He worked briefly as a technical illustrator after concluding his LDS mission to England, but finally established a career as a goldsmith.

After his marriage to Carolyn Ryenar, they moved to Oregon where they became the parents of four children. His painting was set aside until 2002 when he added to his painting “The Portrait of the Prophets” and continues to update this piece. He also paints other religious art.

He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
