a little about me

Brooke Sauer is a Los Angeles-based artist working in painting, printmaking, and alternative photographic methods. Brooke is an avid hiker and backpacker and spends much of her time learning about the natural world first-hand and reflecting on our symbiotic connection to it. Her unique cyanotypes integrate science & art by combining a very old photographic printing process (cyanotype), with her background in painting and her love of botany and the outdoors. Many of her prints utilize pressed plants that she collects while hiking. Brooke refers to her botanical collection as a “nostalgic herbarium”, as they all hold a memory of a feeling, a place, and the people she was with when she collected them. This nostalgia peeks out from time to time in her work in the form of longing or introspectiveness on the part of the figures captured within. Brooke received her BFA from Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles, and her MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.
