Albin's interest in art came at an early age. He is very grateful to his parents who were instrumental in promoting his emerging talent.
In 2006 Albin received his BFA from Brigham Young University Idaho. He credits the knowledgeable and student oriented faculty of the BYUI art department for giving him "the tools all representational artist must have to open the door to communicating in the visual arts". Direction was also given to Albin which helped him break into the gallery scene while he was a college student. Since then Albin has continued in developing his career receiving honors from several prestigious organizations and shows.
Albin Currently lives in Rexburg Idaho with his wife Jenee and their three children. He teaches painting part time at BYU Idaho in the Art department where his art education commenced. "Teaching is another way I can share the beauty of what I have learned and I find opportunitites to improve my art through the constant re-evaluation that comes through teaching."
"If I can enrich the lives of those who view my work in any way, I have accomplished my goal. There is something of the divine that comes through the work of one who has mastered his mode of expression and who has something good to say. Be it simple or profound, intellectual or spiritual, when that message comes through and awakens something within the receiver that improves his or her life; that, I believe, is the higher purpose of art. That's what I strive for."
