Artist Feature - Erin Brown Nov 25 2015

Latest signings

My name is Erin Brown, I was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1990. I spent my childhood pouring over books that were full of quirky, colourful, ink splattered illustrations, such as Quentin Blake who even today is an inspiration to me.

I studied Fine Art: Painting at the University of Ulster. I now live in Newcastle Upon Tyne with my husband and our little dog, Daisy. 

I am driven by a joy to create, a love of colour and of the beautiful things in this world. I love seeing bright colours splash across the page. I use a mixture of watercolour paint and inks on watercolour paper. The inks I use are highly pigmented acrylic inks which have incredible colour intensity and staining power.

I also love to experiment with glitter and metallic paints, anything that adds beautiful colours and textures to my work.

I work from my home studio in Newcastle, where I am kept company by Daisy and the radio.
