Brienne M. Brown

Julian, Pennsylvania

“I find beauty in everyday life, the so called ‘mundane’.  Ordinary people going about their everyday lives inspire me.  I especially enjoy painting en plein air, where each painting reminds me of where I was, of the experiences I had, the sounds, smells, and the people I met.”

Much to her mother’s indignation, Brienne owned little clothing that was not covered in paint.  From a very young age, Brienne showed talent in art and music, but wanted to pursue a career in the sciences.   However, after graduating with a master’s degree in Chemistry, she soon found that art was more than a hobby, it was a necessity.   After leaving her job as a toxicologist to raise her first child in 2008, Brienne had the opportunity to paint more consistently.   Soon she was not only exhibiting and entering shows regularly, but also winning awards.   Brienne holds signature membership in several watercolor societies, including the National Watercolor Society.   Brown’s work can be seen in Splash 17:  Inspired Subjects, PleinAir Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine, and Watercolor Artist Magazine.  With three young children, she continues showing her work in juried exhibitions, participating in juried plein air events across the country, and teaching workshops as part of a busy and fulfilling life.   “I enjoy sharing how I see the world.”
