Harley Brown (1939)

Harley Brown was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1939. He is a Western painter and sculptor of figures and domestic animals. He started selling his drawings door to door, while supplementing his income by playing piano professionally. Ready for a change, Harley, his wife, and young son moved to England, where he studied art for two years and began making a name for himself in western art. It was at this time that he was commissioned to paint Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Returning to Canada in 1966, Harley struggled to get his work accepted by galleries and finally held his first solo exhibition of seventy paintings at the Montana State Historical Society in 1973. It was a sell-out exhibition. Today, Harley has garnered an impressive following and continues to create his amazing works.
