About Brian

Artist | Illustrator | Designer | Fisherman | Hunter

Like a lot of everyday Americans, I live for the outdoors. From standing on a boat floating in the Florida sunshine as I cast to some rolling tarpon, to sitting 20 feet up a tree in a northern Michigan hardwood forest, patiently waiting to arrow a whitetail buck as snow drifts down from the eternal gray skies of late fall, I am acutely aware of the connection between me and my place in nature. When I’m not in the outdoors, I am more than likely mentally preparing my next adventure (AKA daydreaming). So naturally, as a young man who found that the visual arts and his drawing talents were very compatible, subject matter was never a struggle. Deer doodles. Fish drawings. Lure designs.

The majority of the work on this site is more example of what I am passionate about. I like to reminiscence about adventures past, or dream of trips to come. To memorialize fish I’ve caught and bucks I’ve harvested. To capture fish I dream of catching onto canvas, or bucks to be seen into print.

As an experienced artist, Brian brings professionalism, dedication and boatloads of skill to every project.

icon_painting

PAINTINGS. Brian creates beautifully realistic paintings, primarily specializing in two painting disciplines. The first is the traditional, time honored way of using his hands, a variety of brushes, and acrylic or oil paints. The second, and much newer to him, is the digital way. Using Photoshop and a pressure tablet, digital “painting” is an updated and faster way to turn around illustrations that are 100% print ready.

FISH. Brian’s favorite subject to draw or paint, when he’s not actually out fishing.

MISC. Some things I do just don’t have an artistic category. These past projects fall in here.
