The son of a drawing master, Brown studied at the Royal Scottish Academy Schools before moving to London in 1890. He was a landscape and domestic genre scene painter. Brown was elected an Associate of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1889 and was a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours from 1888-1899. He exhibited extensively including at the New Watercolour Society, the Royal Academy, and Grosvenor Gallery.

Eventually, Brown relocated to Northern France where he painted watercolors in many styles. He won awards at several Continental exhibitions for his watercolors and his colored woodcuts.
