For Brian, nature and wildlife subject matter provides the most challenging and. rewarding expression of his artistic talents. "There's a majesty in God's creation. of nature, and interpreting that majesty is truly a humbling experience." Of his. wildlife subjects, he states "I pay particular attention to the animal's eyes. It is said. that the eyes are the window to the soul, and that is as true in the magnificence of. an animal as it is in a human. It is a constant challenge to capture the intricate . texture, depth and emotion of each subject."

Brian comes to fine art after a career in graphic design and art direction spanning more than two decades. He received his BFA in graphic design and illustration in. 1976 from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. Brian recently made . the decision to begin pursuing his fine art full time.

A native of Arizona, Brian knew from an early age that the journey as an artist was what he desired. However, the majestic setting of the San Francisco Peaks of. Northern Arizona provided his inspiration for nature and wildlife art. After traveling. throughout the United States during his ten year career in the United States Air Force,. he settled in Southern California with his wife Jean-Marie and their three children. Brian and wife currently reside in Running Springs located in the San Bernardino. National Forest.

Brian can most often be found spending time with his family, in his studio,. photographing new subject matter, or just reading a good book.
