About Bernie Brown
Bernie is a self-taught pencil artist born and raised in Saskatchewan. A former junior high school art and physical education teacher, he gave up teaching in 1989 to become a full-time artist. In 1993 he and his family left their home in Swift Current, Saskatchewan and now live near Okotoks, Alberta.
Because of a love of drawing, Brown chooses to work in pencil but adds watercolour to accent some of his work. With a technique and style very much his own, his topics vary from wildlife to ranch, rodeo, farm and prairie scenes. Bernie takes great pride in his prairie heritage and strives to accurately depict scenes that portray our western culture.
