John Gary Brown

Born in Michigan, John Gary Brown received his MFA from The University of Washington. He has spent time teaching and traveling and is currently working as a professional artist – painting, photographing and writing.

“I believe that mankind’s marks upon the earth are superficial and fleeting, and I try to depict and celebrate what is truly elemental in the landscape — the breathing of life into great watery vistas, seen through shifting, atmospheric veils, or the falling of sun light onto undisturbed dust.”
