From Folktales to Fireworks in New York City

Growing up in various cities in Oregon, Brooke Weeber would spend much time outdoors. The sea, mountains, forests and animals are all things she has appreciated, and illustrated on paper. Using watercolor, ink and pencil, she creates whimsical scenes with smiley whales, bird-bearded sailors, and even a tribute to NYC (where she studied at one time). Her paintings have a Western folk art vibe and would beautifully fill the pages of children’s books.
