Brooke Borcherding is a 29 year old award winning artist, who is dedicated to an ongoing inquiry of responding to the landscape through paint. Growing up painting palm trees of southern California, she moved to Oregon which inspired her to take an easel outside for the first time in 2009. Brooke received her BFA from the University of Oregon in 2010, but is mostly self taught by observing and responding to nature. With a practice of plein air and studio painting, her current work of deconstructing the landscape aims to shed light on the beauty of ordered chaos. The goal is to create an engaging visual scene that takes you deep into space and dances between the real and the inevitable unreal of paint on a canvas.
She now works as a full time artist in Seattle.
