Considered one of the nation’s top wildlife artists, Mike Brown has collaborated with numerous charities, non-profit organizations and conservation programs. He was named “Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Artist of the Year” seven times and has designed several State Conservation Stamps for the Department of Natural Resources – all with the goal to preserve the beauty of all living things through the precious gift of his artistic talent.
Whether it is in his tranquil landscapes or his impeccably detailed wildlife portraits, Mike Brown has developed a stunning level of realism. “Earlier in my career I considered it a highlight when one of my paintings was placed into the Georgia Governor’s mansion. Today I feel humbled, when a six-year-old intends to spend his allowance on one of my prints. For me as an artist it’s a great accomplishment that my work is appreciated on so many levels. As a human being I am blessed that my artistic creations instill a sense of awe for the beauty of nature in the observer. This is why I paint. And why I am a realist painter. Because this abundance of splendor around us that our generation can still enjoy is rapidly going away …”
