Self-taught artist Brooke Rowlands is making waves in the art world. Her work has been featured nationally from Texas to Times Square in addition to features in national television series including The Vampire Diaries and Houzz project with Actress Olivia Munn. Rowlands is a native of Trenton, New Jersey who has resided in Oklahoma for the last 17 years. She credits her early influence in art to her Grandmother Ruth who helped her cultivate her creative passion.
Brooke approaches her work with a combination of the day’s emotion and the intention of creating alla prima. Unabashed about her intent the artist displays aggressive expressive strokes, in often lush juxtaposition of vivid color, which creates the initial perspective plane of her compositions. Once the mood of each piece has begun to deliver itself the artist selects to either leave the color to stand alone or add flower forms which will eventually emblazon the surface completing each piece. With the floral forms selected the artist takes to work on paper or wood to complete each flower form in stunning detail using ink and other graphic media.
Brooke is also a Mural artist and is a selected artist for the City of Oklahoma City's mural pool. She has completed several murals for businesses and arts organizations in Oklahoma City as well as Edmond, OK. Her work can be featured throughout the city at local establishments such as Sunnyside Diner in Edmond, OK and Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center in OKC.
