About Clive Brown

Photo of the artist Clive Brown from

Clive graduated as a Graphic Designer from the Johannesburg School of Art and Design in 1983 and worked at Janice Ashbey Design in Cape Town before moving to England where he worked at Pentagram Design in London and then Communicator Design in his home town of Maldon in Essex.

A career change found him working in the yachting industry as a yacht captain for 24 years. During this time his sketch book occasionally surfaced but otherwise any fine art found itself obscured in the background.

After leaving the yachting industry he set up a business with his wife to design and build outdoor furniture in Maine in the US.

Now, having moved back to Cape Town, he is finding more time to get to explore his talents with the brush.

Clive lives and paints his watercolour and oil paintings in Cape Town, South Africa where the wonderful local scenery, as well as the many places he has lived, worked and visited over the years gives him inspiration for his works.
