Brett Weaver is a nationally recognized artist who focuses on preserving impressions of the natural landscape as it is rapidly diminishing. After being professionally trained as an engineer, in his late twenties Weaver left his secure career for a more fulfilling life as an artist. He now travels extensively nationally and internationally; painting on location and completing studies to feed his studio work in Chattanooga, Tennessee near where he grew up. Weaver paints in a very bold and honest representational style, hoping to convince but still leave something to the imagination. Weaver’s artistic training was received through workshops with artists including T. Allen Lawson, Ralph Oberg, George Strickland, and Scott Christensen. Significant influences in his work include Edgar Payne, John Carlson, John Twachtman, George Inness, and Emile Gruppé among so many others. Weaver is currently the vice president of the Plein Air Painters of the Southeast, and his work is included in the collection of the Tennessee State Museum and the Booth Museum of Western Art.
