Ann-Marie Brown is a Canadian artist currently working on the west coast. After completing studies in Europe and a Cultural Studies degree at Trent University, she began an artistic practice which led her to her chosen medium of encaustic & oil painting. She's continued to develop her skill in this notoriously difficult medium though a dedicated studio practice and residencies, most recently a 6-month residency at the Artsu Studio in Helsinki Finland.
"She paints from the eyes of compassionate experience, witnessing life in its raw infallible beauty" - Joanna McKenzie Enga curator Gibsons Public Art Gallery
Ann-Marie's oil and encaustic paintings have been exhibited in Canada & the United States, and included in private, public and corporate collections. Her paintings have been featured as cover art for literary journals including Crannog, Ottawa Arts Review, and Pulp Literature, and in films, most notably in Dan Zukovic's award winning Dark Arc "A tale about love,lust,art, and the power of the charged image"
Encaustic Works 2012 curated by Joanne Mattera, authour of the seminal book The Art of Encaustic Painting:Contemporary included her as one of the most exciting artists working in encaustic today.
"Brown's art is like that: the longer you look, the less certain you are of what you see"--Joseph Rosen-Blank Spaces magazine December 2018
