Julie Kahn Brown is a devoted fan of the Impressionist and Tonalist schools. She paints in oil from life and from photographs. She is inspired to make art by the subtle beauty of the world around her.
Julie became an aficionado of the Impressionist painters during a two-year visit to Paris, while also reluctantly studying french literature at Middlebury College. She spent fifteen years as a member of the Silvermine community in New Canaan, Connecticut, learning from David Dunlop and Tom Brenner in oil and pastel, and experimenting in lost wax cast bronze sculpture. At present, she participates in workshops in Europe and on Monhegan Island with Frank Bruckmann and Stan Moeller.
