Painter in oil, tempera and watercolour and teacher who attended college in Ireland, then taught in Belfast and Pimlico. Originally her work was representational, inspired by urban landscapes and inner-city gardens, but later it moved towards abstraction, drawing on her teaching of textile design. Squares, reminiscent of a patchwork quilt, were a feature of her output in the 1990s, a 1999 visit to the Vasarely Foundation in Aix-en-Provence injecting a new element. Brown won first prize in the 1975 Picture of Camden competition, organised by the London Borough of Camden and Young & Rubicam Ltd, and took part in many mixed exhibitions, including Modern & Contemporary British Art at The Millinery Works, 2000.
