Personal Profile

A local townie, Brooke was born and raised in Champaign-Urbana. She has been interested in the arts from a young age and always knew she would pursue something in the creative field. During her time at Parkland, she discovered her passion for Graphic Design and went on to win many awards in Parkland’s Graphic Design Student exhibitions over the years. Brooke started freelancing in 2018 and still works with local clients in her free time.

Some of her clients include DSC, Larry Kanfer, Alice McGinty Children’s Author, Urbana’s Farmers Market, Maize Mexican Grill, Ann Sathers, Florfest Music Festival, Perimeter Road Sound Recordings, and more.

With the little free time she has, Brooke enjoys spending it with family, friends, and boyfriend (and Maeve), playing video games, photography, reading, traveling, and enjoying the downtown scene.
