Brian has a BA in Fine Art; specialising in Printmaking, from Sunderland University, a Postgraduate Certificate in Online Education from Open University and a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education from University College Suffolk.
Brian was taught the craft of Printmaking from Master Printmaker and Artist Pris Forrest in the late 1980’s with a focus on Linocut, Screen-print, and Etching. He has continued to develop these skills focusing on Collagraphy, Linocut, Monotype and mix media processes.

He rarely exhibits his work with his focus being more about ‘play’ and the process of making.
Creativity should be about ‘play’ and is an intuitive process; trying and pushing ideas to make new forms and allowing ideas and images to evolve into being.
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”
Vincent van Gogh
