2016 Artist: Lenore Brooks

“My name is Lenore Brooks. I’ve spent my whole life, one way or another, immersed in design.
As the daughter of an artist, I developed an early love of art and design. This artistic drive eventually took me to Humber College’s Interior Design program in Toronto. I graduated with honours and began working as a Registered Interior Designer for both architects and designers. Working in Toronto was an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to work on multi-million dollar projects, and develop my technical skills. But, after more than a decade in Toronto’s high-end design scene, and with a growing family, I was ready for a change.
Moving my family to Kitchener and launching Lenore Brooks Design, my own home design and staging business, was the beginning of a more relaxed lifestyle. I was able to return to doing some of the things I loved but hadn’t had time for. Sewing, embroidering and painting are loves that have been with me since childhood, while resin art is a new and exciting foray for me. My design experience has helped with my art and creations and I am always open to creating custom items for your home with materials that will best fit your décor. Being part of the K-W Central Art Walk keeps me creating new things throughout the year.”
