Brian D. Payne is a visual artist, specializing in water media painting. His passion for color and expression drives and motivates him to paint full time as a professional artist. He also shares his techniques and expertise during his Art With Brian painting classes. A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Brian has been a professional artist for over 30 years, and is a current member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society. He is inspired by nature, color, organic textures, and his local surroundings.
From his studio in Northwestern PA, Brian is constantly creating new work, trying new techniques and media. Some work is created exclusively for specific exhibitions, but all work is for sale. He also creates prints and sublimated items (in studio) which can be found in a selection of great local businesses, as well as here in the shop.
Brian welcomes the viewer into his creative world, and invites them to explore their own reactions to color and expression through viewing his work. He hopes the enthusiasm and inspiration that sparked his own passion to create, is able to transcend his paintings and, in turn, inspire those who experience his work.
