"The questions 'where are you from?' and 'what do you do?' have always been tricky for me to answer. I was born in California, but grew up in Bangkok, Thailand. I've lived and worked all over the world, but don't define myself by where I am or what job I hold. So who am I? I'm an artist. I am a storyteller. I am a designer."
Brooke Estin is very much the product of an international upbringing. The daughter of two international school teachers spent over a decade living in Thailand, and has since lived and worked all over the world - from Bangkok to London to Kathmandu to San Francisco to Seville and more. Since she was a child, she always had an interest in art and had her first exhibition when she was 16 years old. For the last 15+ years, Brooke has been producing and selling her work globally. As her portfolio expanded and her style matured, she had shows in the US, Europe and Asia. Primarily inspired by the female body, scenes from growing up in Southeast Asia and the complexities of romantic relationships, Brooke uses abstract, yet familiar images in a dash of high intensity colors to emotionally engage the viewer. Many of her pieces are painted on multiple canvases or can be rotated to review new images. "I like to switch it up. I want people to be able to continually see something new in my work and creating pieces with multiple viewing options keep it new and fresh."
Brooke continues to paint from her studio in Seville, Spain and is available for live painting exhibitions, custom paintings and prints. You can find her work on Society6, Facebook, Instagram and at BrookeEstinArt.com
