Brian is a self-taught artist for whom painting is a life-long pursuit. Each work presents an opportunity for Brian to refresh his intention to capture the person, the place or the object in a manner that evokes its special qualities. Whether portrait, landscape or still life, Brian explores the essential nature of each subject while expressing feelings through form and colour. Recent paintings in oil on linen, and works of mixed media, speak to this approach. A series of oil paintings reflect Brian’s continued exploration and interpretation of the Thames River. Brian moved to Toronto from the United States in 1968. London has been home since 1996. Brian welcomes all to his studio, adjacent to the train tracks on the edge of downtown.
