Born and raised in Delaware, Brian is a technology teacher by day and a mad scientist by night as he cobbles together found object robots like a modern-day Dr. Frankenstein of junk.
Inspired by garage sale excursions with Mom and tinkering in the garage with Dad, his earliest work began with clocks, lamps and furniture. However, flipping over a teapot one day and imagining the spout as a nose and the lid as a mouth began his obsession with creating his robot sculptures.
Brian has enjoyed experimenting with found objects for the last 15+ years. His work has been exhibited and collected around the world.
His robot sculptures are not an exercise in analysing social, political, or cultural issues. He simply loves the adventure of finding and collecting new objects and the problem solving involved in assembling those parts to create unique personalities.
His enjoyment continues as smiles emerge when both young and old challenge each other to name the parts that have been transformed into a whimsical characters.
If he does have a message or a wish, it would be for everyone to think outside the box and find new ways to use old things.
