Born in Pocomoke, Maryland, Bryan Collier’s interest in art started very early inspired by “The Snow Day” by Ezra Jack Keats and “Harold and the Purple Crayon” by Crockett Johnson. He began to develop a unique style of painting that incorporated both watercolors and collage. He says “Collage is more than just an art style. Collage is all about bringing different elements together. Once you form a sensibility about connection, how different elements relate to each other, you deepen your understanding of yourself and others.”
Bryan’s art has been displayed in the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. and he was awarded a scholarship to Pratt Institute in NYC where he graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
Today Bryan spends his time working on his book illustrations, creating his fine art pieces, and talking with teachers, librarians and students about books and art.
