Brian was born and raised in central Texas. His family farm nurtured his appreciation of the
outdoors. He loved to draw from an early age and received a commercial art degree from
Austin Community College in 1992. He worked for a sign company in graphic design, specializing
in hand lettering. While working, he pursued his interest in fine art. In 1999, he made the break
to paint full time.
Brian and his wife Valisa live in Fredericksburg, Texas overlooking the beautiful hill country.
