While some believe that fine art is a skill that can only be acquired through vigorous lessons, to others it is simply innate.  In Kranstover’s case, the “Art  Spirit” has been known to him all of his life.  He began painting at a very early age and continued throughout college at the University of Wisconsin.  He has taught art in Australia and continues to teach in Utah. 

What defines his works from many others is the personal investment in his processes and how it pertains to the art he creates within his community, of which he is a fervid advocate.  He has received the prestigious meritorious service award for art in his community.  Kranstover has received numerous awards for painting and sculptures at the Springville Museum in Springville, Utah and has participated in many one man and group shows at the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah.

Currently, Kranstover is working with and redefining his art medium.  Years of working with concept, color, composition and commitment has developed a natural affinity for progressive and new work on a daily basis.
