This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for his modernist architectural sculpture in cast stone, bronze and stainless steel, Edward Brownlee has lived in Hawaii and Oregon.  He was born in Portland and grew up there on the west side in an old, dilapidated neighborhood where he found many remnants of building materials lying about and began making constructions from them.  Quitting school at the end of one year, he joined the Army where he spent three years in Japan as a topographer.

He returned to Oregon to get his formal education and studied forestry and art at Oregon State and then earned a BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts. He studied with Jean Charlot and Gustav Ecke at the University of Hawaii where he received an MFA, becoming the first recipient of an MFA from that Institution.

Ecke, from China, was a special influence because of his Oriental background and his work with jades and bronzes. And from Charlot, he learned to respect the continuity of history. Brownlee also took much instruction from people in the building trades such as carpenters, sheet metal workers, and craftsmen. For the shapes of his sculpture, he was much influenced by the curvilinear patterns he saw in Oceanic shapes.

The Hawaii chapter of the American Institute of Architects recognized Brownlee with a special award for “outstanding contributions of art to architecture”. He currently maintains a studio on the Oregon Coast and works in carved stone and cast bronze.

Brownlee’s monumental sculptures may be found in Alaska, Oregon, British Columbia, Fiji, and Hawaii. In Honolulu, Hawaii, they are located at the Ala Moana Shopping Center, the Honolulu International Airport, the library of Punahou School, and Orvis Auditorium at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The Honolulu Museum of Art and the Hawaii State Art Museum are among the public collections holding work by Edward M. Brownlee.
