This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A Western realist and modern luminist painter, Denys has been inspired by subjects from the West Coast to the East Coast, all over the western U.S, Europe and as far as Africa.  He enjoys painting large-scale work.

Born in Texas in 1946, he moved to Utah  in 1948 and has lived in the Prove/Orem area. While attending Brigham Young University, he was inspired by artists of the Hudson River School.  In the mid 1800s this American art movement included Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Church and Thomas Moran. They created a romanticized style of landscape painting. The term "luminisim" came from this movement.  It describes how light appears to radiate from a painting and Denys has adopted a luminist style for many of his landscapes.  He paints in many styles ranging from traditional realism to plein air painting.

"I seldom paint what I see.  I paint what I would like to see. I try to create a romanticized version of reality.  This makes each painting a very exciting journey."

-- Frederick Denys
