About Me

My name is Ann Howell Brown, and I am an artist and elementary special education teacher in rural North Carolina. 

What fascinates me: 
writers and musicians that are also painters, 
Eric Carle, rural life, the ocean, Stevie Nicks, painting pictures with words, telling color stories, finding art in the unexpectedly ordinary

What I love: 
art, the blues, the American South, chiles rellenos, sending long story-emails to my family and friends, cheese and crackers, the Tar Heels, purposeful run-on sentences, enormous pots of soup, kombucha, joyful people, stacks and stacks of books, thrifting, country music

What I'm successful at:
drinking wine, sprinkling glitter, browsing shops, reading stories, telling stories, sipping tea constantly, killing houseplants, snuggling, creating things out of nothing

What I'm UNsuccessful at:
sports, dealing with spiders, functioning in cold weather, dancing
