With palate knives as her tool and oil paint as her medium, Brooks uses layering and scrapping techniques to develop textural paintings that engage the viewer to reflect through the unconfined imagery. Her subject matter ranges from the ethereal interpretations of landscapes to the soothing simplicity of abstract minimalism. “I love to experiment with loose representational and abstractor forms as I recreate an array of nature’s color ways. Using silver leaf in collage application introduces a smooth shiny component that adds to the complexity of her artwork.
