is a fine art Impressionist oil painter.
His passion for art began at an early age. He followed his dream
by earning a B.A. in Art from the University of Utah. He owned
a successful architectural illustration company for 12 years.
During that time, he rekindled his love for studio and plein
air oil painting. Since 2007, Brent has devoted his full-time
energy to oil painting. He travels internationally for inspiration.
Many of his compositions result from numerous paint trips throughout
Living in Northern California also affords Brent many opportunities
to paint cityscapes, landscapes and seascape scenes. Fresh flowers,
fruit and various vessels collected over the years create his
inspiration for his still life oil paintings.
Brent is a featured artist in the book, Oil Painting with the
Masters and has published articles in International Artist, SouthwestArt,
Art of the West and American Art Collector magazines.
He is frequently included in National competitions with art clubs
such as the American Impressionist Society (signature member);
the American Society of Marine Artists (signature member); and
Oil Painters of America.
Brent has participated in numerous solo and group shows at his
various galleries and his paintings have been displayed in several
museums throughout America. He leads paint demonstrations at
art clubs and through workshops. As a traditional Impressionist
style oil painter, his painting technique uses a loose approach,
limited palette, and objective perspective. This allows any two
viewers to interpret one of his paintings differently.
He believes a properly selected composition that is well-executed
brings a lifetime of enjoyment to a collector.
