Artist Biography

Douglas Aagard is a Utah landscape painter known for his use of color, texture and light. His subject matter is as varied as the Utah landscape itself. He lives in central Utah in a rural community with his wife and three children.

 

Aagard began his career as a watercolor artist. In 2000, after seeing a show of paintings by Gary Ernest Smith he was hooked on the power possible with oil paints. With encouragement and feedback from Smith, he set his hand to paint oils with a knife. “I never get bored painting with oil. There are so many possibilities; so many techniques to try that one could never exhaust the love of learning. I have found that my work has a more dimensional feel or depth when painted with knife, and often times the texture is more fun than the composition.”

 

His paintings have won several state and local awards and are part of many museum, public, private and corporate collections.
