Brad has been an artist most of his life. He majored in illustration in college and studied traditional representational drawing and painting at Watts Atelier of the Arts for five years. Brad has also worked as a product and graphic designer for various manufacturers in the art materials industry. Several years ago Brad veered away from traditional painting to focus on abstract expressionism. He fell in love with creating artwork using only the principals of design, color, and composition in lieu of representational subject matter. Acrylic fluid art proved to be a natural evolution. The numerous techniques, spontaneity, limited control, and endless possibilities are a few reasons he finds acrylic pouring so fascinating.
