Brooke grew up in Oklahoma with lots of time on her hands for thinking and making. She earned a bachelor's degree in philosophy with a minor in psychology at the University of Oklahoma before she decided to pursue art instead. Earning first a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Oklahoma and then an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, Brooke creates sculptures, installations, drawings, prints, and photographs exploring abstract imagery and metaphysical themes. She teaches college art and art history classes in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Whorls and eddies of time, space, and circumstance shape our lives, while the frantically spiraling dervishes of proton and electron clouds shape our smallest parts. I am interested in visualizing this turbulence. Interconnections between lives, space, and time fuel my daydreams and my artwork. I want to give shape to the many layers of forces creating the intricate and amazing beauty of being.
