A Biographical Sketch

Hebe Brooks grew up in the windy and cold land of Patagonia but began traveling at an early age. Her first college degree with an emphasis in world cultures led her to travel extensively and to work in different parts of the world visiting art museums and archaeological sites from Europe to the Far East and all through the Americas.  A second college degree in Fine Arts-Studio Painting and Art History from the University of Houston with the banner carrier distinction for the School of Art consolidated her devotion to art. Further training as a docent for the Museum of Fine Arts Houston has led her to appreciate different art styles from the perspective of curators, viewers and as an artist.
Hebe is a current member of several artists’ associations and she has received numerous international and national awards in all genre – Still Life, landscapes and portraiture. Her art has been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and it is part of public and private collections.
Art writers have recognized Hebe’s work in several publications including catalogs, art books, and art magazines such as the International Artist Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine and American Art Collector.

Hebe is a Master Artist of the National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS) and she currently resides in Texas with her family.
