Brent is a contemporary fine artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Brent took to art as soon as he was able to hold a crayon. Throughout his childhood he would often sit and sketch for hours trying to interpret the world around him. Years of artistic expression made it clear that Brent’s life would be centered upon his love of art. He attended Minnesota State University, where he fine tuned his style and passion for painting.
This formal training led to a variety of arts-related jobs included an International Art Team where he studied under the apprenticeship of John Douglas and Liz Jardine and, eventually, full-time work in his own independent artist’s studio in Phoenix, Arizona.
“The techniques I acquired stay with me to this day: painting, printmaking, natural fibers, and multi-media incorporation. I use whichever technique will give me the end product that I desire. I never tie myself down to one style or one way of thinking because that doesn’t forward the progress. I have used everything from digital photographs to rusted metal to create unique pieces of work.”
