Brooke Mathews is an artist and activist who specializes in drawn animal portraits. Her portraits evoke both physical and emotional truths of the animal kingdom, allowing human viewers to deeply connect with their non-human counterparts.
She has shown her work in a solo exhibition entitled Creaturekind at the R.W. Witt Gallery in Sacramento, California, and in several group exhibitions, online and locally. She studied at California State University, Sacramento, where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Art in December of 2018.
Brooke was born in Sacramento, California but was raised in a forest fifty miles away. She returned to Sacramento in adulthood to pursue her education and now continues to reside in the city, immersing herself in the local art community.
