About the Artist
Welcome to Brilliams.Art
“How They Shine” Oil painting on Birchwood Panel. (H18IN x W36in x D1 1/2in.)
I am an artist living in Camden, South Carolina. I am an exploratory painter, experimenting with the properties and materials I can use in paint and painting techniques. I like to paint the terrain and people I visit and meet. Experiencing the local community and learning about the geology of the terrain is inspiration. A couriousity that takes me on a path of new discovery. Similar to learning a new language. Painting for me is similar to meditation. It is a way to slow life down, explore and reflect. A journey into reflection and a chance to gain insight into what direction to go next. The moments and memories in life give way to new possibilities. Painting like life, needs time to process and develop. Time takes time.
