Mildred Ruth Finch Brown Art

American, 1891-1969

Mildred Ruth Finch Brown was born in 1891. She wed Leroy Brown in 1925. She began painting as a hobby in 1948. Brown was largely self-taught but studied with Bennett Bradbury, Ralph Love, Robert William Wood, Leon Franks and Sergei Bongart. She was a retired teacher of biological sciences, the dean of women at Fairfax High School for many years, and was an administrator in the Los Angeles Schools for 30 years. Brown was a member of the Valley Artist Guild, California Art Club, American Institute of Fine Arts and the Laguna Beach Art Association. Her paintings received awards in competitions at the Valley Artist Guild, Bullock’s, California Club, Los Angeles Tennis Club and the Motorola Company. She had many solo shows and each year exhibited at the Festival of Arts. Brown was on the board of directors of the Laguna Beach Art Association for four years. She was invited to show with the Laguna Beach Art Association at the “Laguna Art Festival” in 1960. Her painting subjects were inspired by the landscape around Laguna and her world travels. She has paintings in countries she visited, including Canada, Mexico, Japan, Hong Kong and Australia. Most of her later life was spent in Laguna Beach at Emerald Bay. Mrs. Brown died there in 1969.
