About the Artist
Born and raised on the B.C. coast, Sarah Chi Brown grew up commercial fishing and living in small island communities. An interest in art at a young age led to university Art History classes, and workshops with many varied artists.
Sarah delved into watercolour while living on a old wooden troller, began exhibiting paintings in Prince Rupert in 2008, and joined the Dodge Cove Arts Guild in 2009. Commissioned paintings by Sarah have been added to private collections throughout B.C., including Whistler.
Inspired by the history and culture of coastal life, Sarah enjoys painting past and present subject matter in many different mediums. Known for her watercolours and “boat portraits”, Sarah also works in acrylics and is now focusing on mixed media paintings.
A long-time resident of Digby Island, Sarah has a home based studio in Dodge Cove. One of the founding members of the Digby Island Arts group, Sarah also shows original artwork at the annual Digby Island Art Show.
