Lil Brookes

I have drawn and painted since childhood but it was only when my life circumstances changed three years ago that I decided to take the leap into the unknown and start my own small business. My small business is Gatekeeper Art and I wear two "hats" for this as an artist and as a social historian with a community practice. My love of everything related to the culture and heritage of Scotland informs and inspires all of my work. My artwork is particularly inspired by the rich textile heritage of Paisley and Renfrewshire...so the traditional Paisley pattern features a lot in my work as well as patterns from the Turkey Red dye industry and patterns inspired by the Art & Craft movement.
