Fawn Brown is a painter from Fort Worth, TX. After struggling to find a single medium to master, she discovered gouache in 2019 and has not turned back since. She works in multiple layers to create scenes that often remind the audience of folklore and fairy tales. Details are added in using a multitude of dots and lines that are reminiscent of pointillism.
One of Fawn’s most recent exhibits has a permanent residence at LeTourneau University. This exhibit, “Capturing LeTourneau”, showcases a series of paintings representative of the university. With half of these paintings being created using dirt brought from the hometowns of students’ and staff, it truly embodies the spirit of campus.
“I’m heavily inspired by the natural world around us. I believe there is a little bit of magic and whimsy even in the plainest or smallest of places. And my art, while small in size, packs a punch whether through color, detail, or implied story telling. A portion of my art could be considered very playful and childlike, whereas the rest remains more ambiguous in mood. I will always appreciate the duality of a gray, cloudy sky that evokes both feelings of peace and stillness as well as unease of the approaching storm."
