Jennifer Smart works on a Lego statue of Wonder Woman at her home in American Fork on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017.

We all played with Legos as kids, and, heck, probably as adults. But few of us use them as art or turn the bricks into a business.

At Salt Lake Comic Con, I met Jen Raine Smart, a Lego artist. I was intrigued by a life-size Wonder Woman she made for the con.

Jen got her start with murals then progressed to 3-D statues. We talk about how she got started, how she picks her subjects and what’s next in her progression as an artist.

Find more about Jen Raine Smart on Twitter @JenRaineSmart, on YouTube, on Facebook or at her Once Upon a Brick Etsy store.
