Brooke began painting in high school and earned a BFA in painting from the University of Oregon in 2010. However, she considers herself a self-taught landscape painter, as she practiced from nature with a prolific output and has not attended any workshops. By a ravenous practice of observation and looking at a lot of art, she has been able to develop her own unique style that is not quite categorizable. People have described Brooke's paintings as the modern take on pointillism, comparable to cubism and Cezanne, or a hand made version of blown up computer pixels.
Over the past 8 years as an exhibiting artist Brooke has most recently been awarded a prestigious prize for best oil/acrylic painting at the 2018 Carmel Plein Air Competition. She is nationally and internationally collected and shows at galleries in 5 different states- Washington, California, Oregon, Utah, and Maine. If you live in the Seattle area you may also find her work in various local artwalks. You can also see her work in February 2019 issue of American Art Collector Magazine in the City Scape and Winter Land editorials.
