Interview with Artist Brooke Weeber

Accordion Sea

Brooke Weeber is the fantastic local artist who drew the cityscape of Portland featured on our Portland Collection. We got the chance to ask her more about her charming Pacific Northwest-inspired illustrations!

Where did you grow up and go to school?

I grew up in Oregon, primarily in Eugene and Salem. I went to college at the University of Oregon and got my BFA in oil painting. When I figured out that I wouldn’t be able get a job in my field, I moved to New York City to pursue a career as a Pastry Chef and enrolled at the French Culinary Institute.

How did you end up becoming an artist?

I was raised by a family who used art making as a wonderful way to pass the time and an important way to show personal creativity, so I grew up drawing and painting and quickly developed an interest in art. I realized in high school that there was nothing else I’d rather pursue, so I followed that path to the art program at the University of Oregon. I so often doubted my abilities when I was in college, constantly comparing myself to other students with more technical skill. It took me separating myself from the institution to really discover my own unique style and to be confident with my work.
