Brian grew up near Portland, Oregon. He spent his young life drawing, and much of his adult life painting and wood carving. In the late 1990's he began sculpting with recycled metal and ignited his creative passion. His self-taught welding skills have since evolved with an artistry and craftsmanship characteristic of his work.
"Giving old, everyday objects a new life as one sculpture is an artistically demanding, yet gratifying, process. My work is designed to emphasize resourcefulness and encourage viewer engagement. Audience reactions fuel my creativity and help me bring my visions to life."
Brian's work can be seen in galleries from New York to Maui, in public spaces, and in several publications- including two art books. His sculptures have been purchased by a number of luxury hotels across the country, by countless international collectors, and by "Ripley's Believe It or Not" museum.
Brian lives in Aloha, OR with his wife/assistant Karen.
