Art has preoccupied me since birth. It has been a vehicle for expression, entertainment, and communication. If born today, I would have been given drugs in lieu of crayon and paper to stay focused. I was blessed with supportive parents, teachers, and institutions.
Rembrandt, Van Gogh,and Matisse were my mentors. Expressionism is my favorite period. I was privileged to attend the High School for Performing and Visual Arts in Houston which culminated with a MFA from East Texas State University.
I love to travel and work on location. It offers a unique opportunity to slow down and experience a place, as well as meeting hosts and fellow travelers. I have enjoyed both wilderness and urban settings. Each offers its own challenges. When I can not get out and at times of deep emotion, I have turned my focus inward creating "Psychic-scapes". Given the choice, I can never resist "D-all of the above” which brings us to my name.
Brianna, Brian. For some the “a” is silent. I identify as gender different. Living somewhere in the middle of the gender spectrum. Life is Good. Paint is Strong!
This is Cory, Waylan's partner. Maybe 21, shy, quiet but happy to pose while Waylan schmoozed and performed. I like to think I captured a little of who these people were, and you could get to know them.
