Brooke Budner is an Orcas Island-based artist and farmer. An accomplished illustrator, her artistic passions range widely from drawing and found-object sculpture to woodworking and design. While studying at the Rhode Island School of Design, Brooke became interested in farming and after moving to San Francisco, co-founded an urban farm called Little City Gardens. Since moving up to the Pacific Northwest, this hard-working woman has continued to strike a balance between her agricultural and artistic endeavors, creating artwork at the same time as growing, gathering and preserving food, building a small house, raising livestock, learning to play the banjo, gaining countless new skills, and starting a small business, Landsea Gomasio.
