A man who honors his experience and tells his stories.

Who refuses to carry the sins of others within his body and life.”

    As always, Brian, this is wonderful! Seeing what you create pushes me to try to stretch myself with my journaling. Thank you.

    Love everything about this…the collaged images, partly shown/torn, not obvious, like feelings expressed but still partly private, and the freedom of your painting…love it all.

    You have created a very powerful piece, Brian. Not only the strong colors but the words as well.
