WELCOME TO BROOKE WALKER FINE ART

I have always had a great love of animals and nature, stemming back to my childhood on a hobby farm in McLaren Vale. As an adult I am now greatly concerned in the conservation of wildlife and their habitat throughout not only Australia but also the world. I feel more needs to be done to preserve these great creatures for future generations. It is my mission to use my art to subtly educate people on the decline of our great animal species and donate part proceeds of the sale of any work to an animal conservation organisation.

Working in both charcoal pencil and oil paint, my work is highly detailed and I adopt a realistic style approach. When approaching my work I want the viewer to relate to the animal, see the world through their eyes and resonate with the struggles these creatures are facing due to habitat loss, illegal poaching etc. My works are quiet with a keen emphasis on the expressions, in particular the eyes. Many people who view my work comment on how much expression is shown.

Currently, I am excited to be working towards my next solo exhibition so stay tuned!!
