Contemporary landscape painter LeeAnn Brook grew up in the countryside of Glastonbury, Connecticut. She graduated from Paier College of Art near New Haven, Connecticut in 1973 with a double major in fine art and graphic design. Studying under the influences of trompe l’oeil painting master Ken Davies, her curriculum in art school was traditionally based. Concurrently, her personal work developed into large format contemporary paintings that she exhibited in shows and galleries throughout New York and New England, winning over 20 awards in juried shows in 3 years. At age 23, she was accepted into the prestigious Connecticut Society of Women Painters. She is a five-time award winner in the California State Fair and a four-time winner in the nationally recognized Wild & Scenic Film Festival‘s juried art competition, including Best Of 2D in 2018.
