Brian is one of the world's most prolific stamp artists, having designed over 100 stamps for Australia and other countries throughout the Pacific region. However, Brian's real passion is portrait painting, which allows him greater scope for personal interpretation of his subjects. He has received numerous commissions for portraits from government, corporations and private individuals worldwide.

Brian is also renowned for creating masterful works of art depicting sporting legends and heroes. His arresting depictions of real life, meticulous attention to detail and flair for scene composition make him the pre-eminent artist working in the field of sport, not just in Australia but the world.

Brian's body of work blurs the line where real life ends and art begins, his celebrated 'hyper-realism' style presents his subjects in razor sharp focus, yet suffused with the inner heroism inherent in the famous individuals and scenes that he paints, making it much more than a brillliantly accurate artistic likeness. His original art, limited edition prints and collector plates for Bradford Exchange are sought by collectors the world over, covering sporting legends like Michael Doohan, Sir Jack Brabham, Dawn Fraser, cricket great Keith Miller, Australian Rules and Rugby League greats and of course, the greatest of them all Sir Donald Bradman.
