Lev Brown was born in Moscow, Russia, and immigrated to the United States in 1980. He spent most of his professional career as an electrical engineer, followed by running a successful small computer business for over 10 years.
In his own words "I was always fascinated with how an artist can create a very rich image with just a few lines". Being married to Eugenia for over 50 years - an architect and a very creative woman in her own right - Lev has had plenty of opportunities to observe various artistic styles and approaches.
He first discovered his own artistic potential only a few years ago when he took an art class and started creating etchings on 'scratch' paper. This class started him on the path to exploring other artistic forms.
He loves nature: mountains and stones are his favorites which is how he created his first flowers made out of stone. Lev's 'Stoned Flowers' designs continue to evolve from natural stones and simple rod lines. Lev has created a very simple, yet beautiful design where no two flowers are ever the same.
At some point. he became interested in creating small forms which people can use in their everyday lives. This interest led him to start creating candlestick holders. He also plans to start making menorahs in the near term.
"a work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament"
