The first time Inez Brown’s niece, Nancy Thompson, looked at her aunt’s artwork, she immediately saw her aunt’s artistic talent. Inez’s art was fantastic – an impressive collection of water color, collage, pastels, acrylic paint, ink, and other mixed media. The collection inspired Nancy to create The Artwork of Inez Brown, a black, hard-bound book with gold lettering as a Christmas gift to her aunt in December 2005. When Nancy presented her aunt with the book and said that her artwork belonged in a book that could be shared with others, Inez cried.

Nancy has completed two additional books of Inez’s art. Mrs. Brown’s Beauty – The Life and Art of Inez Brown(2009) features 40 color reproductions of Inez’s artwork plus stories of her life, family photographs, a family tree, and some of Inez’s favorite recipes.

Inspired by the Masters (2011) contains Inez’s renderings of famous master European artists dating back to the pre-17th century, as well as well-known 20th century women artists.
