Brooke Weeber in her studio

Read up on how she got to where she is today, from her explorations in oil painting to her adventures as a New York City pastry artist. Brooke’s Portland studio is definitely full of inspiration and life, such as pinned up ephemera and healthy potted plants. It’s always interesting to take a glimpse into the workspace of an artist to see where and how the work unfolds. Here’s what she has to say about her process:

“[It] usually starts with just a flicker of an idea. Perhaps I’ll see an intriguing picture online that inspires me or I’ll take something from real life experience. Those will encourage a general concept for a piece and I’ll jot down the idea or just dive right in and start drawing. I don’t often know what the outcome is going to be, and that’s the way I like it. I enjoy letting an illustration grow organically, which lends itself towards more emotionally-driven work. That turns it into a more relatable piece of art…”

We’re delighted to share a collection of her work at ImageZoo. You can also follow her many creative projects on her Twitter feed.

Happy reading, and Happy Friday!
