Brooke is a 33 year old full-time award winning artist working out of Wallingford, Seattle. Her acrylic paintings focus on innovation, aesthetics, perception and place. With a background in plein air (on site) landscape painting her focus lies in color, dynamic composition and beauty of the every day. She obtained a BFA from the University of Oregon in 2010 but also identifies as self-taught when it comes to landscape painting, as most of her experience comes from prolific practice. By looking at nature and abstaining from taking landscape painting workshops, Brooke has been able to develop her own unique style and recognizable voice.
Over the past 8 years as an exhibiting artist she has most recently been awarded 2nd place at the Mercer Island’s MIVAL 2020 miniature show, 3rd place at Shoreline’s 2019 summer at fest, best oil/acrylic painting at the 2018 Carmel Plein Air Competition, best plein air in Cannon Beach Oregon and 3rd place in Ocean Shores 2017 annual Art exhibits. She is nationally collected and shows at galleries in Western Washington, the Oregon coast and California’s wine country.
