Hi, I'm Brooke!
I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t creating something. From a very young age, I was aware that my brain intricately functioned through color, shapes, and composition. As I have grown into these tendencies, I have concluded that I am programmed this way for a purpose.
I firmly believe that art is one of the most influential forms of communication. Before we speak, we see. Our visual ability to interpret and seek the meaning behind an image often has the power to change our view of the world. I hope to create a connection deeper than simple brushstrokes or lines on a canvas, but expose the joy, suffering, brokenness, beauty, and hope in the world around us.
Tolkien and Lewis write of man as a sub-creator—God is the ultimate Creator, but man creates in a smaller way, using existing creation to make something new. As an artist, I hope to bring not only beauty and inspiration, but also spiritual awareness and powerful observational skills.
Art’s purpose is not necessarily to provide the answers—but to ask questions and allow an audience to seek the answers themselves. I am constantly inspired and searching for ways to challenge an audience in a way such as this. I love learning and sharing with people. So please, feel free to contact me whether you want to tell your story, collaborate, or ask a question!
