Angie Brooks is an American visual artist who is inspired by the natural world, the elements, culture, travel, myths, and the human spirit. You can feel this energy revealed in her work as she builds subdued atmospheric layers from drawing mediums, texture, paint, pigment, and collage; and unconscious dialogue into a creative composition that evolves into a work of art.
Brooks attended Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, and the New World School of Arts in Miami. Her real self-discovery and renaissance began through her travels. From Italy to Morocco and each place in between- they have influenced her design aesthetic and vision. She has owned a decorative arts business for over 25 years, creating custom painted finishes for luxury homes, commercial and hospitality spaces across the country. Her work has been featured in Naples Illustrated, Bonita Living, and Casa Y Estilo International, and her paintings are in private collections.
Two of her favorite quotes are:
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”- Lao Tzu(600bc)
“One does not discover distant lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a long time”- Andre Gide(20c)
Angie says, “my next journey of a thousand miles is just beginning… and I am consenting all the way!”
