Matt Brown is a printmaker who follows a form of Japanese woodblock printing in which every color represents a different block of wood. He uses rice paste, water, and pure pigments for his paints, and handheld tools to make the woodblocks. This type of print-making is called “hanga.”


He first came to Islesford as a friend of the artist Gary Hamel. The abundant wildlife and breathtaking landscapes inspired him to make prints of what he saw around him.


Currently, he lives and works in Lyme, NH, but his work is displayed in various locations around the country.
