Charlie Brouwer was born in Holland, Michigan in 1946 and spent his first 20 years living in the same house on Maple and 15th St. while attending Holland Christian Schools and Maple Ave. Christian Reformed Church. He was married to Glenda DeKam in 1966.
Brouwer earned an MA in Painting and an MFA in Sculpture from Western Michigan University. He has taught Art at Fig Tree High Public School in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia; Kalamazoo Christian High School in Portage, Michigan; and Radford University in Radford, Virginia. Brouwer retired from teaching in order to make and exhibit art full time in 2008.
Currently Charlie and his wife live in Floyd County in the Blue Ridge Mountains of rural SW Virginia in a 100 year old farmhouse they have renovated. His home consists of nine acres of open fields and woods, with 20 outdoor sculptures placed along a 1/2 mile walking trail, surround the house and studio. Charlie calls their place "Out There" because of its remote location but, also because he believes that art can point us towards thoughts, feelings, and meanings beyond our immediate experience.
