Growing up around dense forests, vast mountain hollers, and abandoned towns, Brian developed a deep passion for the natural world and his Blue Ridge Mountain home.
As he grew, he synthesized his love for folklore, the cosmos, and wildlife into a personal artistic mythology; in an attempt to evoke the archaic, the ethereal, and deeply mysterious qualities of Appalachia.
Brian works professionally as an illustrator and printmaker. He is a contributing artist at Horse & Hero in Asheville, NC and Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia, PA. He curates and hosts art markets in the Tri-Cities region for the Neo-Appalachian Art Guild and is the founder of HollerHouse in Bristol, VA.
