Originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I currently live in the San Francisco, Bay Area. After a fifteen year career in graphic arts, I have continued a ten-year career painting and selling my work at various galleries and at select art and wine festivals.
Brooke Howie's original inspirations are created in oil on professionally constructed and stretched cotton canvas with heavy duty wood frames. The image is painted on the edges as well. No additional framing is required. "I have two subject matters: still lives and beach scenes."
Her bold color palette contrasting with her soothing subject matter creates a visual feast. Her brush strokes are textural, defining and perfectly complimented. We feel Brooke is definitely a hotdot.com Best-of-the-Best artist.
There is only one original of each painting so once it's sold, her art can still be enjoyed on high quality Giclee and photographic print reproductions; and on items in her gift collection.
