    About Our Instructor

    Brooke Westlund, a native Seattleite, has always loved art. She studied Photography, Art History, and Business at Western Washington University. Following graduation, Brooke worked under artist James Jensen as an apprentice and was inspired to pursue painting.


    She has slowly developed her unique style and built her career as an abstract and mixed media painter, exploring many styles and mediums over the years.  Her work explores her love of life, the beautiful city of Seattle and all that it encompasses: texture, simplicity, complexity, movement, color, spontaneity, awareness and chaos. 


    Brooke’s mixed media and abstract paintings show her world through her photography, different types of paints, dry pigments, stamps, encyclopedia cut outs, high gloss varnishes, and found
 materials. She blends them with large brushstrokes, splatters, drips and bold colors. 


    Brooke has shown her work in many venues across the Seattle area. She has worked on multiple corporate commission projects for interior designers as well as individuals to create the perfect painting for their home.  She opened her public studio and gallery in the eclectic Pike Place Market in 2011 where she spends most of her time creating and showing her latest work. 

    Check out her website, visit her in her studio right under Pike Place Market, or contact her to see her other work or to work with her for a custom painting for your home.
