Brooke Westfall creates works on paper that utilize storybook illustrations and coloring book structures to examine the psychological and sociocultural effects of family dynamics. Influenced largely by eastern miniature painting and illuminated manuscripts, many of the drawings contain intricately dense patterns and inviting details only to mask the often disturbing and violent nature
of the underlying narrative.

Westfall received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2011, and her BFA from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa in 2008. She was recently featured at the Kearny Street Workshop, and has been the subject of numerous partnered exhibitions in San Francisco. She is currently a resident artist at Root Division in San Francisco.
