As a child in Pittsburgh, Pa, Brian began his art training from his Grandfather, Joe. At age 9 Brian and his family moved to Orlando, Fl, where the obvious influence of Walt Disney was all around. This began Brian’s journey to become an illustrator. Brian went on to receive his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration from the Ringling College of Art and Design in 1998. During college, and continuing after, Brian’s dream came true as he was hired to be a character artist for the Walt Disney Company, where he was mentored by the late Disney Legend, Ralph Kent. After almost 6 years with Disney in both Florida and France, Brian sought out to achieve other dreams and goals as he began freelancing as an illustrator. Since then, Brian has been blessed to work with some great people, and great companies world wide, and his dreams continue to come true!
Currently Brian resides in Franklin, TN with his wife Melody, and their 3 beautiful children.
Brian specializes in Illustration (Childrens Books, Editorial, Merchandise), Story Boarding, Character Designs, Conceptual Art, Animation Pre-Production, Game Art as well as Character Voice Overs.
“It is my goal to produce the best artwork that I can, and I truly hope that it touches people hearts, inspires them, makes them smile and makes them think. I want to help kids see that they can achieve big dreams! I want to encourage them and, when I can, help guide them into the destiny that God has within all of us! Let us all together make a difference in the life of a child!
Thanks so much for visiting this site!” - Brian
