Sadly, on December 2, 2016 Brian left this world too soon. His close friends have been working hard to find placement for his beautiful artwork and will hold his studio open this one last time for collectors.
I have difficulty standing still, sitting still, or even sleeping still. From abstract watercolors and beeswax on canvas and paper, images printed on bricks, to aggressive construct works, and tranquil still lifes, my work is a reflection of my inablity to stay focused.

I have been creating artwork professionally for over 16 years, and my studio can be viewed as a mini-retrospective of my labors. In the studio, around town, traveling abroad, and into the wee hours of the morning... i need to create work. I never know where i will find inspiration,... but somehow i do. i welcome all interested people to my studio - all it takes is a phone call. ...we can always find a time to meet. best to you
