From Liz Browne on 22nd February 2010
when I got married in 1086, my aunt, who is an art enthusiast, gave me a set of watercolours, and the artists name is Tom Browne(same name as my husband!!!) She told me the artist was from north of england or Scotland. Having done a little research today, the signature on my paintings is the same as that of your Tom Browne.Do you know he did Loch Lomond, Edinburgh Castle, the Lakes of Killarney and The Houses of Parliament??
