He has received a number of prestigious awards and commissions throughout his career.
Daltons work has been described as follows:
â€¢ â€œDalton Brown (artist in residence) has brought us into a world full of mystery which is yet, somehow familiar. His drawings, studies and his finished paintings are complex and sophisticated works as inventive in form as they are beautiful in their abstraction of human form. His exciting compositions are enhanced by a very rich use of color which through the mood it evokes, slowly draws from oneâ€™s non-cognitive responses in which a kaleidoscope of thought and feelings are called uponâ€.
