Through wood burning, painting, and drawing, N.E. Brown creates a sanctuary to construct a space that invokes a sense of refuge and calm and honors the artist's ancestors who created these spaces for those they loved.
N.E. Brown was born in Pittsburgh, PA and grew up in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Brown pursued a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing at Tyler School of Art: Temple University, then later pursued a Master of Fine Arts in painting and drawing at the University of Iowa.
Currently, Brown’s work uses mixed media including, painting, drawing, pyrography (burning on wood), and woodworking to map the intersectionalities of personal memory, family dynamics, national history, and racial identity. Brown’s work has been shown nationally, including at the Portland Art Museum, The African American Museum of Philadelphia as well as the Art Gallery of Widener University.
