My name is Brooke Allen! I am currently working to obtain my BA and looking forward to earning my master's in art therapy. My goal has always been to help people with their personal journey through artwork. While taking classes, I have learned about many cultures and different places our art materials and concepts come from. This stuck with me because I do not think credit is given where it is due. I wanted to make it my mission to explore every medium I use and "Shine the Light" on its cultural background. I think it's important to help educate people about the artwork they buy or create because it holds more significance and shows a deeper level of appreciation.
