Like most young boys growing up on Auckland’s North Shore, Robert Brown has had a life-long journey with the sea sailing around the world with family in the early 1980s.

Robert is a self-taught emerging artist working with pen and watercolour pencil.

His inspiration comes from the Northland and Coromandel coastlines and Pohutukawas, the theme of old buildings, dominate his work. He has worked at Red Door Gallery Waipu.

Robert uses drafting pens in different sizes nibs from 0.010 to 0.5 and watercolour pencils on Fabriano Bristol paper.

He references his own photography whilst working and aims to create realism in his drawings.
