About the Artist:
Brooke Westlund, a native Seattleite, has always loved art. She studied photography, art history, and business at Western Washington University. She has slowly developed her unique style and built her career as an abstract and mixed media painter, exploring a multitude mediums over the years. Her work explores her love of life, the city, and all that it encompasses: texture, simplicity, complexity, movement, color, spontaneity, awareness, and chaos. Brooke’s mixed media and abstract paintings show her world through her photography, paints, dry pigments, stamps, encyclopedia cutouts, high gloss varnishes, and found textiles.
She has shown her work in many venues across the Seattle area, and has worked on multiple corporate commission projects for interior designers as well as individuals to create the perfect piece for their homes. She opened her public studio and gallery in the Pike Place Market in 2011, where she spends most of her time creating and showing her latest work.
