About this artist

Brian spent his youth exploring the woods on their family farm in Elgin, Texas. If forced to sit still or go indoors, he would draw to pass the time. His sense of adventure tested his parents’ patience when at age eight he began to flag down passing trains. Eventually the train engineer began to blow the train’s whistle in a special signal to let Brian know they were approaching. He was invited to drive the trains and treasures the memory of riding in one of the few cabooses that remained in service at that time.
