James Brown Jr.
Brown documents his environment as he continues to create his art in several mediums from works on paper to textiles of many different fibers. As spiritual beings we are connected to the universe. Brown says his dreams play a tremendous part influencing the completion of his works.
He recognizes himself as a traditionalist, a visionary. He embroiders, hand stitching, paints on silk and has embraced the magical process of painting with wool fibers, felting.
