Read on to hear about how MOOD STUDIO got started here in the harbor.
Nikki Brook, owner and curator of MOOD STUDIO, studied Fine Art at San Jose State University and has been teaching art for more than a decade. In 2015 she opened MOOD STUDIO, a working art studio and fine art gallery. MOOD hosts private events, art classes that change weekly, and creative workshops for different skill levels.
The main draw of MOOD STUDIO is Brook’s contemporary visual art. Brook integrates physical and spiritual aspects into her paintings, distilling subjects down to their essential qualities in order to arouse an evocative mood for viewers to feel and explore. Brook gets her inspiration from the natural landscape of the Pacific Northwest and translates those influences into atmospheric paintings. Through monochromatic and edited color palettes, she emphasizes tonality, ambiance, and space. Brook then builds and defines the surface of her work by using layers of paint on wood panels and canvas. Her process is responsive and intuitive. She considers color and composition while allowing room for experimentation and spontaneity. Utilizing ink, acrylic, and oil paints, with the application of additional mediums for texture, Brook delights the senses and uplift the spirit with her art.
Brook desires to bring beauty into the everyday life of our community. She has donated artwork and services to school fundraising events and contributes to the local art scene. Her work is represented by Seattle Art Source and the Michael Birawer Gallery in Seattle. She is available for commissions.
