Brent Nelson (Born in 1950) was born in Cumberland, Maryland. He grew up near Pinto along the Potomac River on his grandfather’s dairy farm. It was here that he started to embrace the outdoors and spent many summer days hunting on the mountains above and fishing in the family’s farm ponds. His parents and teachers noted that he had the natural ability to draw, so at the age of 14, he was enrolled in oil painting classes. Nelson worked extremely hard and by the time he was a high school senior, he'd won a national student art contest and had already completed a variety of commissioned artworks. He proceeded to Goshen College from where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree. After his graduation, he turned his focus to graphic design and commercial art. And in 1980 he opened up his own Graphic Design firm near Washington DC. Here designed and created a wide variety of print media for government agencies, corporations and associations. Three years later, he worked closely with graphic designers of NASA on logo positioning and development for the space shuttle “Discovery.” He has produces quite a variety of artwork which are available in different finishing options including framed Brent Nelson art which come ready to hang. However, it wasn't until 2006 that Nelson got serious about his endeavors in painting and decided to study watercolor under Sterling Edwards, his mentor. His loose and free style has been influenced by watercolorists such as John Lovett, Alvaro Castagnet, Joseph Zubukvic and Nicholas Simmons.
