Dallas Brown studied at Duncan of Jordanstone and the Royal Academy Schools in London. As a teacher in Dundee and Glasgow for thirty years, he 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, inspired by the coasts and harbours of the East Neuk.
