Brien got serious about his art late in life. After reconnecting with a long time friend and now wife, Katrina had asked what was it you always wanted to do but never pursued? Brien responded that as a child he had dreams of becoming an artist. With that, Katrina had him watch the 'Bucket List.' Soon thereafter Brien and Katrina started a list of things they always wanted to do. On the top of that list was to do an art exhibit. A year after that discussion, Brien had amassed a collection of his works to fill a small gallery. Katrina prodded him along to show his works to others and in September 2012 they created a Facebook Page that immediately gained a small following of nearly 3000 fans. Those were not the result of slick or paid advertisements, they were genuine followers who appreciated his works. A month later a web site was put together. Katrina, helped build the business even further by entering Brien into a couple of art exhibits where 19 paintings were sold at his first art show.
To describe Brien's style it would be one of bright colors leaving the admirer with a smile. Brien's passion is in his belief that we are all connected in some way, in saying that his desire is to share his love of people through his art.
