About Brian

My uncle, who was a vastly better artist than I will ever be, once told me something that has served as inspiration ever since. Children, he said, find absolutely everything beautiful, but we lose this ability to see the beauty all around us as we grow older. And he was right: watch children at play and you'll often see them being fascinated by the visual world around them, from the more obviously beautiful things like magnificent clouds or crashing waves at a rocky beach, to the far more mundane, like the complex patterns of veins in a fallen leaf, or the way in which light falls through a glass bottle. The more you look around you, the more you see what an intricately beautiful place the universe all around us is, if only you can look with the eyes of your inner child.

And perhaps this is part of the job of an artist then: to look with the eyes of a child, but then draw and paint with the hand of an adult. This is what I try to do, even if it is much easier said than done!

I believe the style and technique should follow the subject and mood, so I work in a variety of styles and mediums.
