"It was a pleasure working with Brian on this project. He entertained and met all of our demands for every detail to make this project specific to our job and culture. The police and firefighter sculptures have exceeded all of our expectations and his work has effectively captured all the emotion of the moment."

"The statues are a vital piece to the Fallen Heroes Plaza. In my opinion, the open form and ghost like appearance capture the feeling we were trying to create in a memorial to our fallen police officers and fire fighters They are fantastic and I get great joy in showing them off."
"Working with Brian has been an absolute great experience. I was especially impressed with his ability to understand the subtleties of the Police & Fire Departments and create detail in a "ghost-like" sculpture. His ability to capture both the "essence" through abstraction AND the "detail" through precision craftsmanship are testaments to his artistic abilities. His creations are durable, beautiful pieces of unique public art that feel as though you have entered a 3D sketch lifted off the artist's tablet and made real. They offer something new to the viewer each time you visit them whether it be the season, the lighting or the discovery of another detail. Simply, FANTASTIC!"
