"This painting is alive with the brilliance of faith. We know that fallen acorns will grow into new trees; this death cannot be an ending". Sister Wendy Beckett

"I think God has His hand on Brian... His art is so original and comes from within, which always makes people think.”

Art critic, Sister Wendy Beckett
