His love of art drove him to explore painting techniques by the early age of nine in his hometown of Farmington, Missouri. He is an avid outdoor enthusiast. His love of nature is evident in his work which reflects a detailed knowledge & appreciation of his subject matter. He is not limited to any particular media and enjoys working with oils, acrylics, watercolors and experimental media.
In 1991, he earned his Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from the University of Missouri-Columbia. As of 2002, Brent has been able to produce artwork full-time & support his wife & two children. Brent & his family presently reside in Belleville, Illinois. He has dedicated himself to creating art full-time & to excellence in the art world.
Brent has been quite busy completing murals & specialty finishes for area designers, private homes & businesses. He has found a special talent for combining color compliments & texture for dramatic effect. He has become especially good at all aspects of interior decorative painting including trompe l’oeil (fool the eye 3-D), faux stone, faux marble (simulated stone and marble), wood graining, fresco finishes, Venetian plaster finishes, dragging, rubbing, ragging, sponging & glazing.
His murals range from replicating old-world frescos to the extreme of light-hearted cartoon characters, which have been popular for children’s rooms & home theatre areas. In addition to traditional wall mural art, Brent can offer a variety of large, finished-edged canvas murals, which allow mobility & versatility to the home or business owner.
