Brian has been a full time Artist & Illustrator since graduating in 1989.

He was especially drawn to using linocut and then scraperboard through the tutoring of wood engraver Peter Reddick at Art College in Bristol.
His work is figurative, graphic and based on drawing.
Painting and drawing from life and the model is a core activity.

The scraperboard process he practices is the reverse from usual mark making.
He begins with a black board and gradually removes parts of it’s thin dark surface to reveal the white china clay beneath.

His illustration work has appeared in many areas including Advertising, Design, Editorial and Book Publishing. Read Less
