Abraham Brown, a Louisiana native, first moved to Beaufort in 1996 to train Marine Corps recruits at Parris Island.

“I immediately fell in love with the area,” Brown said. “It reminded me of New Orleans, the way the oaks hang over the road.”

“Art is a beautiful thing,” Brown said. “I love that I can make something from nothing using just my imagination and inspiration from the world around me.”
