Anne Blair Brown was born in North Kingstown, Rhode Island and raised in Nashville, Tennessee where she currently resides. Her work centers on intimate scenes inspired by local surroundings as well as travel in the US and abroad. “My artwork starts in reality and evolves through my imagination. As an impressionist, I believe in a painting process that enables me to tap into my creativity rather than trying to copy and perfect. “My goal is to invite you, the viewer, to connect to the painting such that you personalize the experience and use your own imagination to complete the story.” Currently, Anne’s work can be seen at art galleries across America including Provincetown, MA, Kennebunkport, ME, Charleston, SC, Bluffton, SC, Naples, FL, and Leipers Fork, TN.
