Gentry Lambert, a senior at Spanish Fork High School, first started painting with acrylics is 2013 and then switched to oils to create wildlife and mountain scenery. Since the beginning of Gentry’s artistic career, she has entered her art in the Salt Lake County Fair and received multiple awards including Best of Show. This 18-year-old was selected for state art competitions multiple years in a row.
When Gentry is not studying for tests, working or painting, she’s singing with the Utah Valley Children’s Choir, a private music academy whose mission is to “sing for the Lord.” During her six years in the choir, Gentry has performed all over the county and in Canada. Her favorite experiences were the Washington, D.C., tour and the LDS Church History tour to New York and Nauvoo, Illinois.
After she graduates from high school, Gentry plans to attend Snow College, then transfer to the University of Utah or Utah State. Along with her aspirations, goals and talents, Gentry wants to inspire others to be kind.
“Sometimes people overlook that. I was raised not to disrespect anyone because everyone is equal,” Gentry says.
