Brownless (née King) has
been painting in water-colour for over 60 years. She studied privately
with Gladys Best, R.W.A., in Devon, England and then at the Walsall
College of Arts and Design. She paints land and seascapes in the
traditional English style using a limited palette of 4 to 5 colours for
each scene, thus setting the tone and atmosphere. She belonged to many
art societies in the UK and, since coming to Nova Scotia in 1970,
she has been a member of the Annapolis Royal Arts Council, the Chester Heritage Society and Gallery and the Lunenburg
Heritage Society, which started the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society.
In the Annapolis Valley, she taught evening classes and more recently has
given informal classes in water-colour in Lunenburg. Her work has been exhibited in various parts of Nova Scotia.
