My name is Brian Parker. I was born and raised in Knoxville Tennessee. I can remember having a real desire to want to draw all the way back to an early teenager. I was just always convinced I could never do it so, I didn't pursue it. In the early 90's I dabbled around with acrylics and actually done a few paintings. I just felt like something was missing. In 2005, I bought a sketch book and some basic drawing pencils. From there things really escalated. What seemed to be missing suddenly became very real. Not long after I purchased the good stuff and my passion has grown ever since. I love detail. I love the look of realism. Portraits are a favorite. I hope to show to people and share with them a passion that continues to grow. Thank you for looking.
