01 about Harley Brown

Harley Brown was raised in the Canadian town of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. In his teen years, he and his family moved to the great "Stampede" city of Calgary, Alberta. It was there he went to the Alberta College of Fine Art and began to draw and paint the Old West.  He also played the honky-tonk piano in an eccentric Calgary nightclub.



He has been a member of the National Academy of Western Art since 1977 and has acquired numerous awards in a number of national art events.


Eager to share his knowledge, Harley Brown has conducted hundreds of invariably sold-out workshops and demonstrations in the US and abroad.  He has illustrated many magazine covers and authored numerous articles on art techniques, as well as his best selling books, "Confessions of a Starving Artist", "Harley Brown's Eternal Truth for Every Artist" and "Harley Brown's Inspiration for Every Artist". 


His regular column and insightful Bon mots can be seen in International Artist magazine.
