Magnificent Artists Pool
Born in Cornwall in 1945, he showed an interest in art from an early age, following his Grandfather around Europe painting and sketching until he earned a scholarship to the Redruth school of arts. Over those 4 years he won many awards, widening his range of media, depth of experience and understanding of the arts. During the late 60s and early 70s Brian delivered boats throughout the Mediterranean enabling him to attend many art workshops primarily in the artistically inspired cities of France and Italy.
In 1975 Brian set of for 2years in Asia working, and studying martial arts and gathering material for his art. Asia deeply influenced his use of colour and sense of essence.
In the late 70s Brian dragged his Cornwall-loving family to Australia to "see what he could see" and immediately fell in love with animals and beautiful landscape. While he has always been enamoured of landscapes of landscapes and nature, the Australian wildlife and environment gave him new enthusiasm to paint in his style of realism.
Since then Brian has explored Australia extensively from Darwin to Tasmania and spends moths at a time in the bush sketching and photographing.
At other times he attends workshops always interested in new techniques, styles and ideas. He is a multiple award wining artist and is totally committed to his art.
