Brian and his work originate just east of the urban sprawl of St. Louis and just west of the endless rolling fields of Middle America. He is a rural modernist equally comfortable in the chaos of the city or the solitude of the open prairie. Although he is professionally trained as an architect from Kansas State University, he finds the practice of art much more intoxicating. His work blends the detailed hand of an architect with the compositional eye of a photographer, and he voices it with the passion of a poet. He creates from inspiration in the everyday; each piece represents the spirit of a moment with a specific time and context. His work strives to distill the form and feeling from these experiences - revealing through diagrammatic interpretation the essence of simplicity.
Works on display are original pen and ink with watercolor.
