Amanda Joy Brown works out of her studio in Nashville, TN. Brown earned her MFA in the painting program at the Savannah College of Art and Design and has continued on to exhibit internationally. She has attended residencies at SCAD Lacoste and Vermont Studio Center and was a part of Ground Floor Gallery and Studios for several years. Her work is included in private and public collections in several countries. Brown's work explores a textural, layered approach to painting, embracing pattern and line, fusing collage, direct application, and drip techniques.
