Brad combines his passion for making art with his concerns for our environment by incorporating a Japanese Zen philosophy known as wabi-sabi. His award-winning work is exhibited in both solo and juried group exhibitions garnering acclaim from environmentalists and art lovers alike. Currently represented by galleries in Arizona, New Mexico and North Carolina. Brad’s unique paintings are included in over 300 private and corporate collections both nationally and abroad.
During his 34 years spent as an art educator he received several honors through “Who’s Who of American Teachers” and the 1990 national ‘Art Teacher as Artist’ award from the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation, Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was through this award that he participated in a residency program at Colorado College, Colorado Springs, CO. While teaching, his own art took many turns in its development, from detailed wildlife drawings in scratchboard, graphite, and colored pencil (even working for a graphics poster company out of Woodstock, VT) to oil landscapes of the area to finally Zen inspired nature paintings in acrylics which he is most known for today. It was his continued concern for our environment and a visit to the natural beauty of Sedona, AZ and the Grand Canyon that guided him into this unique style of painting. Two of his works recently hung beside some of America’s greatest artists known for their inclusion of nature in their work. The 2010 survey exhibition was held at the Hudson River Museum, New York and presented over 60 original works by American artists from the Hudson River school to present day. The selection committee used one of his paintings as the frontispiece image for the exhibition catalog. He belongs to several professional organizations, one of which includes the Colored Pencil Society of America where he achieved Signature Status.
