Holly Brooks

A native of Massachusetts and former landscape architect, Holly Brooks resides in Portland, Maine. Her mediums of choice, watercolor and acrylic, allow her to portray her subject matter with spontaneity and translucency while focusing on color relationships and composition.

“I like to be able to capture the landscape in an abbreviated way and to play with color and shapes on the canvas … to me, the perfect watercolor is a balance between controlled knowledge and a bit of reckless abandon.”
