Brooke Rowlands Art

Self-taught artist Brooke Rowlands is making waves in the art world. Her work has been featured nationally from Texas to Time Square in addition to features in national television series including The Vampire Diaries. Rowlands is a native of Trenton, New Jersey who has resided in Oklahoma for the last 13 years. She credits her early influence in art to her grandmother but influences of abstract artist Franz Kline and illustrator Clare Leighton are also evident on the surface. Rowlands approaches her work with a combination of the day’s emotion and the intention of creating alla prima. Unabashed about her intent the artist displays aggressive expressive strokes, in often lush juxtaposition of vivid color, which creates the initial perspective plane of her compositions. Once the mood of each piece has begun to deliver itself the artist selects the flower forms which will eventually emblazon the surface completing each piece. With the floral forms selected the artist takes to work on paper to complete each flower form in stunning detail using ink and other graphic media. The completed drawings are clipped from their paper substrate and their neutral color is expertly inserted into the bold abstract planes on her canvases. The artist then prepares the surface with finishing compounds that seal the layers together marring them into harmony. The result of the tumultuous combination of color and neutrality is a playful dance that exists between atmosphere and subject.

Brooke did an amazing job in creating a custom piece of art for our home. We met to discuss colors, flowers, etc., and then she took that information and created something unique for us. I absolutely love how it turned out and get compliments on it constantly. She was great to work with and completed it quickly for us, even with a holiday approaching. She not only created the piece, but delivered it, and had it installed professionally. I couldn't be happier!

I've had an opportunity to work with Brooke on several occasions as both the designer and project manager. As a visual artist she has a uniquely Keen Eye for what she does in assisting people help facilitate projects from start to completion. I would highly recommend her services for anyone seeking a project manager, designer or visual artist to consult in the completion of their project.
