About the Artist: 
Sculptor artist Brooke Weston, repurposes taxidermy mounts fusing fantastical dioramas with traditional trophy mounts. 

Born into an artistic family in Carmel California, Brooke’s creative interests began early in life. The great grand daughter of famed photographer Edward Weston, Brooke was surrounded with art from her beginnings. Painting and drawing from a young age evolved into mixed media sculptures which is now her primary artistic focus. Her childhood passion for natural history, dollhouses and the morbid were reconciled when taxidermy and dioramas where fused.

Brooke has a large resume of featured publications including LA times, Thrillist, Ozy News, American Craft Council magazine and Adam Savage's Tested TV. Brooke’s prolific body of work has been shown at numerous galleries across the US and abroad in solo and group exhibits including La Luz De Jesus and Miami Art Basel. 

Brooke’s pieces are radically unique from one another yet all share the concept of small worlds and environments situated in entities. Her work while seeming almost manufactured, is meticulously composed with remarkable detail and skill combining fantastical concepts with tangible play environments. Brooke’s sculptures entertain the viewer while provoking curiosity.

Currently residing in Los Angeles, she continues to create, evolve and show her work.
