Brooke is a full time award winning artist working out of Wallingford in Seattle WA.
She began painting in high school 18 years ago and earned a BFA in painting from the University of Oregon in 2010. She considers herself a self-taught landscape painter, gaining knowledge from plein air peers when she took her easel outdoor for the first time in 2009 and producing a prolific output ever since. Her unique style evolved from a desire to investigate human perception in aesthetics, and to stimulate our human senses by exaggerating the color and space we see around us.
Over the past decade as an exhibiting artist Brooke has most recently been featured in Oct/Nov 2020 issue of Plein Air Magazine for acrylic plein air painting. In 2019 she was featured in American Art Collector Magazine and in 2016 Southwest Art Magazine selected her as one of the 21 artists under 31 to watch. She was awarded a prestigious prize for best oil/acrylic painting at the 2018 Carmel Plein Air Competition in California. Brooke’s work is nationally and internationally collected and hangs in galleries along the West Coast - Washington, California and Oregon. If you live in the Seattle area you may also find her work in various businesses who participate in neighborhood art walks.
When Brooke is not making art you can find her at one of Seattle’s many niche locations with pinball machines. She’s a competitive pinball player who qualified and went to Vegas for the Women’s World Championships in 2019.
