Brooke Hartigan is a 22 year old artist from Whangarei, New Zealand. She draws mainly with coloured pencil, selling prints of her artwork at markets around Northland. Brooke has drawn from a young age and is currently studying conservation in Whangarei. Her studies have ignited her passion for New Zealand’s native flora and fauna and thus inspire her drawings. Brooke’s art is realism that involves a bird or animal in simple but effective style. Through her art, Brooke hopes to promote the conservation of New Zealand’s unique creatures.
