Cara Brown’s Bio
I am a native of Marin and now a full-time watercolorist and teacher. Other than a few workshops, I have no formal art instruction. I taught myself to paint by finishing every painting, finding my way through each one. I spent 20 years in the tech world and then a brief stint selling real estate with my mom Niz Brown. This all changed when I first showed my work at Marin Open Studios in 2007. Since then I’ve been fortunate to be able to devote myself to the world of art.
A color addict and a sucker for striking light, the inspiration for my paintings comes from wherever I am – in my simple garden, the gardens of my family members, my travels in Europe and on the island of Kauai. My art has won awards at the Sausalito Art Festival and at the California State Fair. It has also been chosen to be published in two art-instruction books. In addition to original watercolors, I make all my paintings available in several sizes of high-quality reproductions on sustainable bagasse (sugarcane fiber) art paper, printed with archival pigmented inks.
In 2011 I began leading weekly watercolor groups and weekend workshops. Mentoring others in their art journey has become central in my life. I feel incredibly privileged to do what I do. I live in Fairfax, CA with the loves of my life: my husband Joe Greenwood and our black Labrador, Bojangles.
