HRH Brooke Major

American born artist from Atlanta, Géorgia, USA.

Brooke Major has been living and working in France for the past 20 years. As a child, Brooke has always been top of her class in drawing and painting, as well as an avid equestrian. She moved initially to Paris to study political science at an American university, but felt herself drawn more towards the arts and followed auditing classes at the Beaux Arts school in Paris. Her political science studies led her to work for over a year and a half as an intern at the US Embassy in Paris. Following her two childhood passions, art and horses, Brooke moved to Normandy and started her dream of breeding showjumpers and set up her art studio in a grain loft in a 16th century castle dwelling. Brooke has recently decided to invest all of her time in her artwork as the demand for international exhibitions are growing. Brooke sculpts oil paint, challenging both techniques of painting and sculpting and exemplifying light and shadow. She chooses all of her subjects from her childhood experiences: travelling, horses and architecture.

Artist Statement:

I paint because I need to. I paint my own reality
