Brooke O'Connell

Emerging Artist

The subject of my artwork stems from personal experiences, my love of horses, travel, and relationships. Journaling and photography are important elements in my work due to my interest in art as a form of documentation. Inspired by the beauty found in the world, I strive to express the light, energy, and wonder of places I’ve visited. What begins as a quick watercolour sketch painted on-site while travelling, often becomes inspiration for larger oil paintings once back in the studio. Referencing my journals and travel photography as I paint is an integral part of my process. By doing so, I’m submerged into the memory of a specific time and place. Painting these works reminds me of the great sense of exhilaration and freedom that were felt when I was first discovering these unique places. My artworks include what I believe to be the most important details, and are a means for me to record the world’s beauty, as well as my lived experience.
