Gina Brown graduated from Newcastle University in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art. In her final year she focused on her exploration of portraiture. Her work has since broadened and her interest in the narrative has developed into biographical themes.
Her practice is oil based and she works on fine cotton canvas and linen. Drawing provides an essential link between her source imagery and her finished paintings and is key to expressing the depth and character of her work.
In 2013 she was shortlisted for the Neo Art Prize and in September that year, won the Curzon Ripon Exhibition Prize at the New Lights 2013 resulting in a solo show at the Curzon Ripon in 2014.
She is currently based in Newcastle Upon Tyne
