In Clint Marchant's oil painting, "Jenny Lake at the Tetons," a deep blue lake nestles at the base of the Teton mountain range beneath a lake blue sky. The angular Teton Mountains are unyieldingly steadfast below the wisps of drifting summer clouds. The lake is one of the many lakes surrounding the range. In the painting it is framed by high mountain vegetation and aspens, a scene that is both typical and breathtaking. "I was drawn to this specific landscape because of my childhood in Kamas where I was surrounded by a similar landscape," Marchant says. He executed the painting in oil applied with a palette knife to canvas.
Clint Marchant graduated from South Summit High School. He played football and took State in wrestling. Clint completed an LDS mission in Nashville, Tennessee. He worked in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he met his wife, Katie. They married in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple, and have a daughter, Jadzia. Afterward, the family moved to Logan, Utah, where Marchant pursued a Master's degree at Utah State University emphasizing Geotechnical Engineering. He says he chose the field "because of my interest in hands-on engineering practices and geology. The various classes required not only dedication, but also helped me pay closer attention to detail." He enjoys fishing and spending time with his family.
