ACRYLIC PAINTING with Brian Simons
Being a self-taught artist, I have derived much of my inspiration from the "GROUP OF SEVEN", the French Impressionists and the Writings of Baha'u'lla'h (Baha'i Faith). My family and I moved to Vancouver Island from Alberta, where I first began to paint approx. 30 years ago. Prior to that, I focused mostly on drawing and sketching. I began showing my work in 1988 and have been represented by numerous galleries on the Island. From 1993-2000, I painted on a full-time basis and have had many successes and confirmations in that period, including numerous commissions for a television production company, commission work for architects, several corporate and private sales both in Canada and the United States. Aside from my website, my work can be seen at:
KAMP GALLERIES, CHICAGO, IL
VAN DOP GALLERY, NEW WESTMINISTER, BC
SOUTHSHORE GALLERY, SOOKE, B.C.
