Brooke Walker


Brooke Walker’s artworks give a voice to the voiceless. Her passion for wildlife conservation and desire to understand the intricate nuances of the human/non-human animal relationship inspires her art practice. This love of nature and wildlife was created and nurtured during childhood surrounded by animals on a hobby farm in McLaren Vale, South Australia. 


It is Walker’s mission to reconnect the human and natural world through carefully considered and meticulously rendered oil paintings and drawings. Each piece is created through many hours of intense concentration and attention to detail. At completion, she wants the viewer to feel part of the painting, as though they could reach out and interact, almost feel the artwork breathe. Whether in human or non human animal form, above all, it is her goal to create beautiful, thought-provoking imagery to encourage empathy and discussion in order to entice change in the human attitudes towards non-human animals and strengthen the bonds between species.

Brooke Walker has studied with many acclaimed artists worldwide such as David Kassan, Robin Eley, Shana Levenson, Jennifer Gennari, and Annie Murphy Robinson, and has been internationally awarded for her paintings.
