About

 

Brooke Elayyne is Brooke Elayne Hargis, an artist currently residing in Southern Utah who grew up in the dark coniferous forests of Northern Minnesota and the rolling, hilly farmlands of Northern Wisconsin.  Brooke gladly traded snow for sand in her move to the arid Southwest and is trying to make a hack of it either by the heat of the day or the slightly less heat of the night.

Brooke prefers to be oil painting, drawing from life, working digitally, or exploring a new medium in her spare time.  As far as subject matter goes, she enjoys illustrating the narratives that shape the world around her and exploring whatever social or scientific concept that grabs her attention at the time. 

Beyond that, she loves naps, snacks, and the people she keeps closest to her.
