Read a bit about Brian, from his website:

Born in 1988 Brian’s interest in art came at an early age. He is very grateful to his parents who were instrumental in promoting his emerging talent.

In 2014 Brian received his BFA from Brigham Young University Idaho. He credits the knowledgeable and student oriented faculty of the BYUI art department for giving him “the tools all representational artist must have to open the door to communicating in the visual arts”.  Working as an Illustrator and a Fine Artist, Brian is in love with all art and the art process.
Brian’s career has been a continual learning experience. His growth comes natural as he seeks for excellence through education and hard work. He is constantly finding new things to appreciate in the masters both living and deceased. Some of the influences he credits for his inspiration and development are Nicolai Fechin, John Singer Sargent, Laura Robb, Richard Schmid, Quang Ho, Carolyn Anderson and Leon Parson.

His work has been featured in the 2013 Society of Illustrators scholastic show,  BYU student show 2011-2013, as well as a guest spot in Sebastian Cast: The art of Caricature to name a few.  He currently resides in Rexburg Idaho with his wife Sam.

Catch you back here tomorrow!
