Brooks is an Australian artist who currently resides in Melbourne. She has a BA and a Graduate Diploma of Fine Art, and has exhibited regularly since 1990 in Australia and overseas.
"Navigating a territory between material awareness and a love of seeing the big picture in the smallest of elements, Brooks’ practice hinges on the ability to conjure complexity from simplicity. Informed by her observations of the streets around her Melbourne studio, Brooks refers to herself as an ‘urban archaeologist’, searching the built world for traces of action and deterioration."
