About Brian

Hello there, I have been involved in the arts my whole life and thanks to my mother & friends was encouraged to pursue my passion. I have my MFA in Combined Media, which means I work in a lot of different mediums. My Main focus is on Painting, Screenprinting and the Graphic Arts. Right now I work full time as a Graphic Designer at a Tshirt company here in Philadelphia.

I have worked as a Substitute teacher in a city school district and also taught at the college level. I have experience working with youth in some of my volunteering at local non profits back in NY. I am blessed to have found a creative outlet and believe in the power of the arts to heal and foster character and personality. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with others and introducing them to new methods and artists and supporting their own unique creative voice without criticizing. The most important part about teaching art for me is being supportive and nurturing the creative urge.

I have a broad range of experience and skill set to pull from. I have experience with photography and even had a dark room in the basement of one of my old apartments. I currently work at an apparel printing company and know all about screen printing both for apparel and art, I have my own set up and used to have my own Graphic Design and screen printing business. I am familiar with most drawing methods and painting in both acrylics and oil. I also have sculpture experience.

If you like what you read and think we would be a good fit send me a message, hope to hear from you soon! Thanks
