A graduate from the renowned Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM. and Oklahoma City University; Brent serves as the Fine Arts Director for the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma. Over the past 20 years, his work has been featured in exhibits across North America and abroad in Paris, France.

Brent is of Chickasaw and Ponca heritage and because of this distinct cultural background; he expresses his narratives through both the southeastern and plains tribal lens. His early artistic influences were Native artists such as Jerome Tiger, Rance Hood and TC Cannon. The remnants of the “Oklahoma Style” of Native art and Brent’s love for contemporary art and graffiti; has come together in a style recognizably his own.

Brent's paintings have been featured in publications such as Southwest Art and Oklahoma Today; as well as receiving numerous accolades and awards. Brent loves to implement new ideas and paint with reckless abandon to capture the essence of the unknown. Although his plate remains full with commissions and public art opportunities; his passion as an artist and job as an arts education director has never been more evident as he mentors the next generation of young First American artists.
