Dallas Brown studied at Duncan of Jordanstone and the Royal Academy Schools in London. As a teacher in Dundee and Glasgow for thirty years, Dallas Brown exerted considerable influence on the course of modern Scottish art.

He moved to the East Neuk of Fife later in life and his work began to change almost immediately. Despite being a figurative painter for most of his career, he had always loved abstract art. In 1994 he began to create new shaped abstract paintings, of which he said

"... they have materialised over the last few years due to an increase in confidence, knowing and maturity, and there is the possibility that I am making the paintings that I have always dreamed about."
