Marc Brown Biography

Marc Brown is an American author and illustrator of children's books. Brown writes as well as illustrates the Arthur book series and is best known for creating that series and its numerous spin-offs. He is a three-time Emmy award winner; the "Arthur" TV series adapted from the books was named number one on PBS for three years. He has also served as an executive producer on the show since its 10th season.

He currently lives in Hingham, Massachusetts. Brown majored in painting at the Cleveland Institute of Art. After graduation, he received a scholarship to attend Syracuse University. Brown held several odd jobs post-graduation to make sends meet, but soon found success in the children's book industry.

After presenting sample drawings to the Boston, Massachusetts publisher Houghton Mifflin, Brown was told they would contact him in the event they were interested. They did. When they offered him nearly five thousand dollars worth of freelance work in illustration, he learned more about opportunities in professional illustrating and decided to make it his career. In 1969, he began part-time teaching at Garland Junior College in Boston and illustrated textbooks.
