About Megan Adams Brooks
Inspired by patterns and textures in the natural world, Megan Adams Brooks creates abstract paintings on silk that reflect the beauty found throughout nature. Brooks began painting interior scapes on canvas early in her career. It was through depicting the fabrics and patterns in a room that she discovered her fascination with fabrics, which led her to designing custom textiles. From there, Brooks found her true passion for the silk medium. Painting on silk, similar to watercolor, provides many opportunities for unexpected challenges and happy accidents. The process is time-sensitive, multi-layered and endlessly inventive. Brooks' unique method of self-expression fulfills her unending obsession to create.
Brooks' work has been exhibited at Art Basel in Miami and McKinney Avenue Contemporary (The MAC). Her work hangs in public and private collections, nationally and internationally. Brooks holds a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in painting and drawing from Southern Methodist University and a Master of Fine Art degree from the University of North Texas. She lives and works in Dallas, TX.
