Her work is influenced by her background in Graphic Design and centers around the theme of femininity. Brooke is best known for her colorful floral arrangements; however, she also enjoys painting coastal scenes and figurative paintings.
The main focus of her work is to communicate joy and capture a lighthearted playful attitude. The bold brush strokes and colorful palettes combined with the simplification of form result in paintings filled with an approachable energy and movement.
Brooke’s work has hung in the Metropolitan Arts Council, the Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville, and Artisphere’s “Artists of the Upstate Juried Exhibition,” where she was awarded the “Crowd Favorite” title.
In addition to her studio paintings, Brooke enjoys live painting at both corporate and private events.
“Live painting is such a fun and unique way to connect with people from so many different places and backgrounds and allow them as viewers to engage in my work and become a part of the creative process. I draw energy from them and the pieces that I create in a live setting always contain a distinct energy that cannot be replicated alone in a studio.”
Brooke’s work is influenced by her faith and it is her hope that it would bring a taste of southern hospitality and grace wherever it may go.
“I only want to create paintings that make people happy and if I can add a little more joy to someone’s life, then I would consider my work a success.”
