My Bio
Brian Somerville received his BFA from the University of Evansville in Indiana and an MFA from Florida Atlantic University. He has taught classes and workshops and worked as a commercial artist for a number of years.

Brian’s work consists primarily of sculptural animal figures that are built solid, hollowed, reassembled and then covered with images carved by hand. His beasts are often entertaining, but carry important social, political and personal meanings. Brian is currently the artist in residence at OZ in Nashville, TN.
