Brooke was born in Okinawa, Japan, in 1995, where her mother was serving in the US Air Force. At the age of 5 her family moved to South Dakota, where she grew up adoring nature and animals. At the age of 13 her family relocated to Arizona, the “meh”-est state of all 50 states.
This was about the time her artistry skills grew, and she took many art classes during her time at the high school in Sierra Vista. She further progressed her skills by participating in classes at the local community college, paying her own way for tuition and supplies by working full time. She finally sold her first piece of at in 2015.
In 2016 she met her husband, Jake Sherwood, and against all odds, are still married to this day. He encourages her to pursue her dream to create art for her living, free to express all the emotions she seeks to answer through her artwork.
