This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted by John Underwood in May of 2006.  He states: "All of the information was taken from two separate interviews with her in the Charlotte Herald of Port Charlotte, Florida June, 1963.  I haven't found an exact birth date but she was 75 when the article was printed in 1963 and I have no death date."

Ann Marie Brown experimented with a variety of mediums throughout her life including painting, printmaking, sculpture, enameling, ceramics and glass.  "I believe I've worked in every medium except leather.  Basically I have an unquenchable thirst for different things.  Every time I see something new I want to try it." she stated in an interview for the Charlotte Herald.  Her Missouri Ozark landscapes in oil show the influence of Edmund Wuerpel and her ceramics are characterized by bright, sometimes experimental glazes.  Her woodblock prints appear to have been influenced by Joseph Vorst.  She owned at least five of his pieces and may have studied with him. 

Mrs. Brown was born in Salisbury, MO about 1888, and the family moved to St. Louis soon after.  She studied with various teachers including Humphrey Wooldrich and Edmund Wuerpel and attended the Chicago Art Institute for a while. 

She married Guy Brown in 1912 and whenever going on a business trip with him she would "hunt up an artist in the vicinity and spend most of her time with him."

She was president of the Society of Independent Artists for two and a half years, a member of the Artists Guild of St. Louis, Independent Artists, Ozark Artists Association, American Artists Professional League and President of St. Louis Women Artists.  For 12 years she wrote and illustrated for Popular Ceramics magazine, residing and exhibiting in St. Louis until she retired to Port Charlotte, Florida in 1963.
