Artist Bio- After completing studies in Europe and a Cultural Studies degree at Trent University, Ann-Marie Brown began an artistic practice which led her to encaustic & oil painting. She's continued to develop her skill in this notoriously difficult medium through a dedicated studio practice and residencies, most recently an extended residency at the Artsu Studio in Helsinki Finland.
Ann-Marie's oil and encaustic paintings have been exhibited across Canada & the United States, and been placed in private, public and corporate collections. Individual works have been reproduced for literary journals including Crannog, The Antigonish Review, Qwerty, and Existere, and in films, most notably Dark Arc "A tale about love,lust,art, and the power of the charged image". She was one of the featured artists in Encaustic Works 2012 curated by Joanne Mattera, author of the seminal book The Art of Encaustic Painting: Contemporary, & is slated to be profiled in the December 2021 issue of Encaustic Arts Magazine produced by the Museum of Encaustic Arts.
