Lois Brown began her art experience while growing up in the Gippsland area of Victoria, Australia.
As an art student at the Ballarat Institute of Advanced Education and Melbourne State College she developed an interest in printmaking particularly screen printing and etching.
Lois graduated with a Higher Diploma Of Teaching Art & Craft in 1975, and was employed by the Victorian Education Department for 18 years teaching Secondary Art & Craft.
In 1983 Lois began experimenting with watercolours and in 1994 became a full time painter concentrating on her watercolours and teaching art workshops.
Currently Lois is living in Drouin, Victoria and the richness of subject material comes from the unique Gippsland environment from spectacular alpine areas, rolling hills and valleys to the coast with sweeping beaches sand-dune systems, tranquil lakes and inlets. Her use of colour is ingenious whether to suggest distance in a landscape or reflected light on a flower.
Lois uses traditional and experimental techniques in watercolour to capture changing moods in nature or studies of Australian fauna and flora.
A regular entrant in Civic Art Exhibitions and Rotary Art Shows, Lois has received more than eighty major awards, including 1988 Queens Hall Parliament House Acquisition, and 2000 Camberwell Rotary Exhibition Works On Paper Landscape Award.
She has held solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Victoria.
Her work is represented in Institutions and private collections in Australia and overseas.
