Angie Brooks - Contemporary Artist

20181009_155733_edited.jpg

Angie Brooks is an American painter and Artist who is inspired by the natural world, the elements, culture, travel, myths, and the human spirit. 

You can feel this energy in her mixed media processes, as she builds layers from charcoal to texture, metal leaf, paint, pigment, encaustic, photography, and/or collage; composing an unconscious and intuitive dialogue into a creative composition that evolves into a work of art. 


She studied at prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, and the New World School of the Arts in Miami. But her real self-discovery and renaissance began through her travels; from Italy to Morocco, and each place in between influencing her strong design aesthetic, and artistic vision.

She owned a decorative arts business for over 25 years, working and creating custom decorative finishes and murals in luxurious homes and commercial spaces across the country, and her work in interiors was featured in Naples Illustrated, Bonita Living, and Casa Y Estilo International.

Two of her fave quotes are:

 'The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step' - Lao Tzu (600bc)

'...One does not discover distant lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a long time...' -André Gide (20c)

Brooks says, "My next journey of a thousand miles is just beginning, because we have many paths, millions of miles, choices in life- I am even more aware now that I have a say how it resonates, and ultimately it is my choice, and I am the Director of my life with intention.

I will continue to seek and explore the empty nest, undiscovered paths and places, and redefine my passion and my soul's purpose with greater strength, awareness, full of hope, love, expansion, and of course...consenting all the way."

Live! Create!
