art. After liberating himself from the confines of poor
art instruction, he became a successful illustrator. Then,
in 1980, he left the commercial art world to become
a fine artist, and has never looked back. Brian is best
known for his floral art paintings, but has painted many
subjects. Basically, he paints whatever he feels is worthy
of painting. Brian’s work is in seven prestigious muse-
ums, including The Huntington Library and the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art.
