Artist's Statement:

"I believe that in order to find your own style and purpose in painting, one must pass through the works of the old masters and understand the original foundations of this visual art."

Christopher Conway Brian  was born the second son of Richard and Martha Brian on December 7th, 1951 in Louisville, Kentucky.  After 12 years of Catholic schooling, he spent the next 30 years working in the insulation contracting business.

     In early 1999 Brian sold his business and a month later enrolled in the Cincinnati Art Academy. Brians' instructors included: Carin Hebenstreit, Greg Storer, Kay Hurley & Marlene Steele.   He painted and showed his artwork at the Pendleton Art Center in downtown Cincinnati for nine years.

     Brian currently displays and sells his artwork at the Brian Manor Fine Art Gallery, located in Brian Manor Bed and Breakfast and Event Center which he co-hosts with partner Janet Berg.  Check out www.brianmanor.net for more information. His paintings can also be found at Closson's in Oakley and  McMurray Frames & Gifts in Lebanon.
