Since 1989, Chad Hawkins has been one of the LDS church’s premier temple artists. He has published over 100 temple works art. His art career has taken him to six continents and nearly every temple. His art can be found within sixteen temple cornerstones and hanging on interior temple walls. The original work of his Vernal Temple was chosen to be on permanent display inside that edifice.
Chad began his series of temple artwork, at the age of seventeen to support his two-year mission in Frankfurt, Germany. His portfolio includes many commissioned pieces, and his works are in private collections wherever there are temples. In 2011, he was awarded the US Army War College commision to create the official painting for their graduating class.
He has sold nearly two million works of art and written/illustrated six bestselling books for the Deseret Book Publishing Company. His seventh book, Temples of the New Millennium, was released in 2016 and celebrates the completion of the church's 150th temple.
