   20 years ago Brian left a successful career in advertising to become a painter. Heís never

looked back. The journey has given him a lifetime of experiences, travels and memories,

not to mention a few accolades and recognition along the way.

   He received his early training at The Art Center in Los Angeles and later at Atelier

LeSueur in Minneapolis where he learned the classic, academic fundamentals as they

were taught in Paris a century ago. He enjoys sharing and passing on these fundamentals

through teaching workshops.

   Brianís work has been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur, Southwest Art, and The Artist

Magazine among others. He has received many awards for his plein air work and most

recently an ARC International Salon award.

   Heís a signature member of the grand daddy of all the plein air groups: the exclusive

Plein Air Painters of America. A visual raconteur, heís known and collected for his

paintings of funk, junk and antiquity.

   This native Californian, who now makes his home in Minnesota, can be found playing

the banjo when not painting.
