"Portraits create a direct conduit to the heart. They connect us to our humanity through empathy and memory by honoring the people and animals we love."            ~Brooke Walker-Knoblich


" I commissioned a painting of my daughter with Brooke. She did a fantastic job and the painting hangs in a prominent spot so it's always in sight. Couldn't be happier. She was easy to get ahold of and very responsive to any questions."  

~William H. Los Angeles,  California

"Brooke painted our dog "Doc" who recently passed away. She listened as I poured out the details of his life and how much he meant to our family. She captured the details and personality in his eyes with her painting. Incredible attention to detail and amazingly beautiful work. We all cried when we opened the painting and will be forever grateful... Thank you Brooke!" 

~Angela  H. Sacramento,  California

"Brooke is amazing. She worked with me over the course of several months to create a unique landscape painting of our family farm (including a 4-hour road trip out to see the farm.) I surprised my wife with the painting and it will be a part of our family for generations."   

~Chuck B., San Francisco,  California
