Bringing the Everyday to Life
Brienne has been drawing and painting for most of her life but had never considered pursuing a career as an artist until graduate school. While studying chemistry, Brienne’s research was so time consuming that for the first time she couldn’t find time to create. Her unhappiness during this time made Brown realize that art was more than a hobby, it was a necessity. This was a valuable lesson. From that time on she has made art a priority in her life and instead of trying to find the time; she started to make the time to paint.
Ten years ago, she left her toxicology job to start raising a family and began painting more consistently. Soon she was not only exhibiting and entering shows regularly, but also winning awards. Brienne earned signature status in the National Watercolor Society, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, and the Utah Watercolor Society. Brown’s work has been published in Splash 17: Inspired Subjects, PleinAir magazine and Watercolor Artist Magazine.
Brienne’s passions are watercolor and plein air. She loves using the slightly controlled chaos nature of watercolor in bringing the everyday to life.
“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. As I try and capture the essence of a scene, my paintings are always more about a moment in time than about a particular location. I enjoy sharing how I see the world.”
