Ann-Marie Brown is a Canadian artist based on the Sunshine coast of B.C. After completing religious studies in Europe and a Cultural Studies degree at Trent University, she began an artistic practice which is tied to a passionate exploration of the world. Ann-Marie travels for months at a time through Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, returning always to distill collected experiences into bodies of work that capture revelatory moments of stillness.
"She paints from the eyes of compassionate experience, witnessing life in it's raw infallible beauty" - Joanna McKenzie Enga
Ann-Marie's oil and encaustic paintings have been exhibited across the United States and Canada, and included in private, public and corporate collections. Her paintings have been featured in academic journals, and on film, 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, author of the seminal book The Art of Encaustic Painting: Contemporary, listed her as one of the most exciting artists working in encaustic today.
