2022 Artist Bio
Brooke Eagle

Brooke lives on the coast of Wilmington, North Carolina with her husband Caleb and baby girl Layla. She is passionate about all things creative whether it’s painting, piecing together decor for any celebration, or whipping up something in the kitchen. Brooke loves to travel and finds much of her inspiration by exploration. Whether its picking up a shell during a walk on the beach, finding a perfectly organized fruit stand on a street corner in Thailand, or trying something new at local restaurant. Anytime her senses encounter something new she is driven to create a response- wherever that may be.
