BROOKS ANDERSON paints luminescent landscapes and seascapes that capture the dramatic beauty of the California coast and the Eastern Seaboard. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California State University in Northridge, where he studied with such established artists of the Los Angeles art scene as Saul Bernstein, Watson Cross, Walter Gabrielson, Marvin Hardin, Joyce Treiman, Hans Burkhardt and Ernest Velardi. He also studied in Maine with William Holst, a student of Hans Hofmann. His work is found in numerous collections, including the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, and is included in the seminal book Spirit of Place: Contemporary American Realism in the Landscape Tradition by John Arthur.
