Brent was a child with a vivid imagination, and was influenced by the abundant light and vast spaces in the American West where he grew up. By the time he was a teenager he was a painter, and he has never wavered from an all-consuming desire to create art. He has bachelor’’s and master’s degrees in art, taught drawing and painting at a Texas college for over 20 years, and taught international students at Mexico’s Instituto de Allende. Flenniken most often paints highly-creative and colorful landscapes, carnival scenes, and abstract compositions, and is known for imbedding mythical, subliminal figures in his paintings such as animals, ghosts, and angels. His work is also shown at Silver City’s Tatiana Marie Gallery.
