Brian spent the greater majority of his working life in architects offices in London and the home counties before moving to East Anglia in 1987. In 1994 Brian, who had already taught painting and exhibited his work both in the UK and abroad made the decision to paint full time. Brian carried on with his tuition until 2011 and following his election to the Royal Society of Oil painters he now concentrates on his own painting. He has written four art books, released six tuition DVD's and is included in the Who's Who in Art. Last year Brian set up the Institute of East Anglian Artists and is its current President. He says "Although I enjoy painting the more traditional landscapes from life, I am not really interested in pure representation. I work mostly in my studio continually searching for that "one painting" which depicts my own recollection of the feel of the subject I saw at the time. The painting that evolves is a response to this feeling. The more I paint, the more I discover about what painting is all about."
