Don Brown

This archive showcases the artwork of Donald Hazen Brown, a talented artist who dedicated his life to his passion for creativity. Despite pursuing a career as a United Methodist minister for over four decades, Don's love for art never wavered. It wasn't until his retirement in 1998 that he could fully immerse himself in his art, earning a bachelor's degree from Emory & Henry College and two master's degrees from Drew University Theological School along the way.

Don's artistic journey was a testament to his dedication and perseverance. From studying watercolor painting under renowned artists to teaching classes in retirement, he constantly honed his skills and shared his knowledge with others. His first public showing in 1983 marked the beginning of a prolific career that spanned decades. Don's commitment to his craft was unwavering, even as he navigated the challenges of balancing his artistic pursuits with his family life.

After retirement, Don finally found his ideal "Place to Paint" in his childhood home in Allendale, NJ. With the help of his son Paul, a local contractor and cabinet maker, he transformed his basement into a beautiful art studio and gallery. This space provided Don with the freedom and inspiration to create stunning works of art that reflected his lifelong passion and dedication. Each brushstroke was a testament to his unwavering commitment to his craft.

Each piece is a reflection of his unique talent and artistic vision, capturing moments of beauty and inspiration.
