A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Brooke Major moved to France over twenty years ago to follow her two passions: painting and breeding horses for show jumping. Today, her painting studio is the grain loft of an 18th-century farmhouse on the beach in Normandy, where she paints and raises her horses. Brooke works in oil paint using palette knives to make paintings that create the effect of low-relief sculptures.  Quite often, her images are white on white or very lightly tinted against a white background.  In choosing her subjects, Brooke revisits her childhood experiences of traveling, horses, and architecture. Many of her architectural paintings celebrate the priceless architectural legacy of Normandy.
