Peter Brooke was born and raised in the harbor town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire, England. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Manchester University, he moved south to London and began his professional career as a sculptor and designer for Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. After moving to the United States, he began to exhibit bronze sculptures of animals. The quality of these sculptures was quickly recognized and images of his work appeared in Southwest Art magazine, Wildlife Art News and Art-Talk. His work has been shown in many museum and gallery exhibitions throughout the country, winning an Award of Excellence in 1998 at the Society of Animal Artists Annual Exhibition. Recently, Brooke has shifted his focus to that of the human figure. He was the winner of the coveted Gold Medal Award for Sculpture at the California Art Club’s 94th Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition in 2004.
