Katherine Brown

Biography from Eclectic Art & Objects Gallery

Katherine Brown was born in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1948. Her father, an avid outdoorsman often had Katherine accompany him on his many excursions into the surrounding countryside of Mississippi and Arkansas. It was there that she developed her love of nature and the play of sunlight across the landscape. Her family''s reverence for the arts afforded her frequent trips to museums, the ballet, and concerts. Her familiarity with great works of art inspired her dream to create beautiful paintings of her own.

Katherine Brown began studying art under Paul Penczner, who was then the leading portrait painter in Memphis. Penczner, an Austrian by birth, was a classical artist and teacher. Brown acquired a vast knowledge of drawing and perspective, which she built upon at the National Academy School of Fine Art in New York City. There she studied under artists Daniel Green, N.A. and the late Robert Phillip, N.A.

"The soul cannot express itself if the hand cannot execute," Katherine believes. Using only the purest oil pigments made in Germany and Holland, and fine linen canvases she constructs herself, Katherine creates brilliant works of art distinctly her own.

Katherine Brown has exhibited in numerous group shows in Atlanta, New York, Washington, D.C., Dayton, Ohio, St. Simon''s Island and Sea Island, Georgia. Her work is in private and corporate collections across the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan.

Noteworthy collectors include: the late philanthropist and patron of the arts, Robert Woodruff; author M. Scott Peck, M.D.; Richard Evans, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Gaylord Entertainment; Scott Shepherd, Publisher, Southern Living Magazine; and William Mitchell, President, Carter & Associates. Also among her clients are the Ritz Carlton Hotels and the Wedding Palace in Kyoto, Japan. She has done a series of paintings for Tiffany & Company in Atlanta, as well as a number of paintings for Southern Living Magazine''s show homes in Atlanta and Nashville.
