Terri Brooks, a New England Native, has new art in Harvest Gold Gallery!
Brooks studied at University of Maine, majoring in sculpture, but quickly turned to watercolors as a more suitable medium for her bright composure and passion for color. Ms. Brooks then went on to have a 30-year career teaching Art in public schools of New Hampshire. Her drive and excellence gave her the ability to start showing in national exhibits in 2001, and since that time her art has been shown in over thirty national juried art exhibits! She has received numerous awards for her work, which is cited as “soft, glowing light and the use of color granulation”
Brooks talks about her work, “My work is about the effects that light and atmosphere have on people and places. I am a keen observer of the world around me. With camera or sketchbook in hand, I seek to provide myself with the visual information necessary to work from back in the studio. The summer haze, early morning mist, crisp wintery light, etc. all has a unique effect on the subject and I strive to capture that in my painting. The beautiful Mt. Washington Valley Region of New Hampshire that I live in provides me with inspiration to paint just as it has inspired many artists before me.”
This inspiring Artist and Teacher takes home in Freedom, New Hampshire, and can be seen in Galleries including, Surroundings Gallery in Center Sandwich, NH, her Freedom studio, and our very own Harvest Gold Gallery!
