Meet Brooke Hunter

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brooke Hunter.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My parents are artists and I grew up going to gallery openings, art museums and working on murals with them. However, I never thought I would become an artist too. The first time I seriously considered studying art was after placing first in my district’s congressional art competition. I was given a complimentary trip to Washington, D.C. and saw my art hanging in the capitol building. This was a defining moment for me. I applied to the Laguna College Of Art And Design soon after and when I received my acceptance letter along with a scholarship, I packed up my car and drove from Oklahoma to be here in beautiful Southern California. It’s my third year here and I’m loving it!

Please tell us about your art.
My preferred medium is oils. The intensity and variety of colors you can produce with them is amazing. The texture is also great and can be incredibly fun and satisfying.

I love to paint a variety of subjects, especially people. My main goal is to capture those feelings and thoughts that are so often just fleeting moments and turn them into something that is grounded, cohesive, and relatable. I’m an emotional person and I feel like I’m trying to find a way to process everything and make sense of it all. It can sometimes be hard to find the right words for certain thoughts.

Do you have any advice for other artists? Any lessons you wished you learned earlier?
Yes, especially for those who are just starting out: Don’t take yourself too seriously! You’re making art, have fun with it! If you’re not happy with your work, allow yourself the ability to fail and keep practicing! The only way to improve is to put in the hours.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I have paintings currently on display at the Hobie surf shop in Laguna Beach.

    I remember your dad in my high school art class in Bridge City. Our teacher was Mrs Seymour. Lance drew an awesome pencil picture of a ranchers corral. Such fine details for Lance at at very young age. I have always liked his work. Looks like you are following in their footsteps. I wished I would’ve know about this sooner as we were just in Laguna 3 weeks ago. We could’ve stopped in and said hello. Great work and keep it up.
