My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.

I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

Southside Times

There'll be an article coming out very shortly in the south side times about the release of the book if you're the chance to grab a copy of it does little to the background where it all began hope you enjoy!

Bummer IN floods

Well it happened again the studio is under water again this whole myth about the hundred year flood is exactly that a myth. I was called by the antique mall next to My building today and told that I should come down and check my building that the water was close to the door, only to find out that when I open the door waves across the floor I cannot tell you how that feels well I could but it wouldn't be nice. The wonderful thing is I've been through this for with the last hundred year flood everything is on wheels and off the floor. So I carried all the quilts out through the water to put them in my car safe from harm. Think happy thoughts were going to need them in the coming days. Chat with you all soon make a great day.

My Traveling Journey

Well folks it's finally happened the book is in my hands and I can't wait to share with you.
This quilt kind of sums up what is I am trying to say this is the total traveling journey that is now come to an end is somewhat bittersweet.

But I'm looking forward to where it's going from here I hope you're along for the ride. This quilt is in the new book Crazy Quilted Memories

by Brian Haggard

The inspiration for this quilt are the many travels I've had through my life starting at age 19 with a European trip and ending with going to Europe with my family for the first time at Thanksgiving two years ago. All of the pictures you see around the border are of my travels and I used antique pictures and postcards in the center for the places that I had wanted to travel but had not been yet, I am happy to say I have now been to all the places on this particular quilt.

If at any time you have any questions that you would like to know about what inspired the work on these quilts don't hesitate to ask I'm always glad to share the stories of my life and my art.
