Fine art crafted from 100% found & recycled material
Brian grew up in Portland, Oregon. He spent his young life drawing, and much of his adult life painting, wood crafting and wood carving. In the late 1990s he began sculpting with recycled metal and unearthed his greatest passion. His self-taught welding skills have evolved with an artistry and craftsmanship characteristic of his work.
"I am intrigued by the challenge of creating an entirely unique piece of art from a random collection of discarded and often commonplace objects. Giving these old, ordinary items a new life as one sculpture is an artistically demanding, yet gratifying, process. My sculptures are also designed to prompt viewer engagement. Audience reactions fuel my motivation and help bring my visions to life."
Brian's work has been purchased by a number of luxury hotels across the country, by "Ripley's Believe It or Not" museum, and by countless international collectors. His sculptures can be seen in galleries in New York, San Francisco, and on Maui, as well as in several publications- including two art books.
Brian lives in Aloha, OR with his wife (and assistant) Karen.
