Joseph F. Brickey was born on June 11, 1973 to Wayne and Joanne Brickey and currently resides in Provo, Utah, with his wife and four children. He has spend over a decade studying art throughout the United States and Europe and is a graduate of Brigham Young University. His award winning paintings have appeared in various publications and museums; he has found success and respect in painting many subjects, but considers creating religious artwork his greatest honor as an artist, including for LDS temples throughout the world. Joseph paints in a style reminiscent of the old masters, using classical form and composition to create art filled with symbolism. He believes that "art should both measure up in the museum and capture the common heart. The greatest art is that which generates the greatest good."
