Mike Brown is an internationally recognized wildlife and landscape artist, who has received numerous awards for his realistic depictions of wildlife. Through his artwork Mike Brown supports a multitude of conservation projects.
Entirely self-taught, Mike Brown grew up in Georgia/USA. Often his ideas for painting are inspired by memories of those bygone days. While extensive travels around the globe provided an abundance of inspiration for Mike Brown’s artistic creations, his profoundest influences remain his love for animals and the splendor of the scenery that surrounds him.
Currently residing in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Mike Brown`s Cherokee Indian heritage infuses his paintings with reverence for every form of life. In a masterful level of photorealism, his tranquil landscapes capture the harmony between humans and nature or serve as backgrounds for intrinsically detailed wildlife portraits that fascinate and amaze the observer.
Mike Brown’s paintings can be found in many collections, among them the Georgia Governor’s mansion. Furthermore in 1984 his artwork has been published in the book “Georgia - A State of Beauty”, depicting some of the most charming and unique places of the “Old South”.
After founding and running a successful 3D-visualization company for almost two decades, Mike Brown returned to his easel in 2009 and began entering and winning many renowned national and international wildlife art competitions.
“The ability to preserve the beauty of all living things in nature’s never-ending circle of life through this precious gift of artistic talent is humbling in regards to the abundance of awe-inspiring creations by Mother Earth.” Mike Brown
