About

Hi. I’m Brooke. I am an author and an art appreciater. I have dabbled in art and graphic design, but I never really got in to galleries, museums and fine art until just recently. I had the typical notion that it was old news and that museums were boring until I started researching Hugh Lane. 
Hugh Lane was a 20th century art dealer who hung out with the icons of art and literature that I learned about in school. The Impressionists and authors from the Irish Literary Revival. 

I read about these artists in a whole new light. These paragons of the Arts…Rodin, Monet, John Singer Sargent, George Bernard Shaw, William Butler Yeats …were all as unruly as I am! 

I loved hearing the stories of these peoples’ lives. You really can’t make this stuff up. I found out two things that were pretty revolutionary in my appreciation of art.

1.”History” really wasn’t that long ago.
2. I found out that a good story can change my opinion of a work of art.

The mission of Let’s Talk Art With Brooke is to promote the exhibition and accessibility of artwork, by promoting galleries and artists.

I wanted to learn all I could about art and artists in general [historic and current]. Should I take a course? Get an MFA? Why not speak directly to the experts.

So that’s what I did. Surprise! They all wanted to talk to me as well and tell their stories. That was in 2016 and it’s still going!

  1. Brooke, would I be allowed you use portions of your work in my high school Paint and Draw classes?

    1. Hi Suzanne! Thanks for visiting/listening. What specifically are you wanting to use? The artwork is not mine. I am using with permission. Any of the audio or writing on the blog posts, you may feel free to use…b
