Mormon artist’s shift from mythical creatures to religious art fulfills dream

UTAH---It’s important to have a dream, but it’s even more important to achieve it, according to award-winning religious artist Howard Lyon and his wife, Shari Lyon. Howard accepted the unexpected opportunity to work in the video game industry and became the artist of thousands of mythical creatures, elves and dragons. Eventually Shari said she felt another shift coming and Howard felt drawn toward religious art. Shari said switching from video games to religious art was a leap of faith for her and Howard and a “huge jump off the cliff,” but she knew it was what they were supposed to do. [link]
