Brooke's paintings, drawings, and prints use natural forms to describe environmental, emotional, social and spiritual issues. She creates artwork born from the love of the natural world, paying special attention to the way organisms interact and impact each other.
Connections are woven between our human anatomy and that of natural environments continuously shifting and readapting around us. Her artwork brings to the forefront the idea that we inhabit perpetually decaying bodies, while investigating the connection between nature’s lifecycles and those of our own. She references historical, botanical, entomological, and anatomical scientific illustration to make these delicate connections.
Questions regarding the environments we inhabit, interpersonal relationships we keep, and our physical and mental health are imbued in ethereal figures clothed in biological metaphor, bringing light to the ecosystems of humanity's inner worlds.
Neuron flowers, metamorphosis, and birds-nest hearts are the symbolic adornments from our physical world to describe invisible, but real worlds within. They show the present realities that escape the eye, but lie just beneath the surface.
