Deborah Brown is an artist working in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She received a B.A. in Art from Yale, summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and an M.F.A. from Indiana University. Brown has captivated the art world with both her landscape works, and more recently with her paintings of New York City shelter dogs. Critic Ruth Bass writes, “Brown goes beyond romanticism, using the landscape as an occasion for exploring the limits of superheated color as a vehicle for personal expression.” When it comes to her portrayal of unwanted dogs, Brown takes the informed study of her earlier work and ups the psychological ante.
