Brook Lamberti is a Scrantonian with an eye for history and nostalgia. Her graphite artwork transports you to another era which is all the more interesting since this young artist is only 17 years old. Train aficionados will love her Steamtown artwork! We can’t wait to see her work up close at Arts on the Square!
Tell us a little about your background as an artist.
I think what’s unique about me as an artist is that I got into this field by accident, and I still remain self-taught. At 17 years old, I look back at not only my short life, but my short art career and how new it still is. I’m from the Scranton area, and I have been all of my life, so it’s always had an impact on how I viewed art and what content I drew. You can definitely catch me some weekends drawing at a local landmark, or even taking photographs. I’m a querying YA author, a poet, artist, urban photographer, and camera & typewriter collector extraordinaire! No matter what I do, I do it with some form of art in mind, and gratefully so.
Aside from a Gold Key or two at the Scholastic Art Awards, I’ve been lucky enough to rank 7th nationally in the country by Pendell Youth Fine Arts, and I’m traveling to Anaheim, CA, this summer to National Fine Arts once more.
What mediums do you work in?
I work in mainly graphite pencil, but I also venture into watercolor and charcoal.
What inspires you?
History, change, and nostalgia. Most of my artwork is based off a historical event, photograph, or simply a fond memory. A lot of my work is also Scranton-themed, and seeing a community come together over a common place motivates me to keep the good memories coming.
Do you do commissions?
Yes! In fact, I mainly work off of commissions. I mostly do portraits, animals, and objects, however I can do landscapes also.
What will you be featuring at Arts on the Square?
I will be selling 11×17 poster prints of my artwork in limited edition! Along with that I will have 3×4 stickers with my artwork printed on them. My friend, State College Sterling, will also be exhibiting some of his handcrafted sterling silver jewelry, made locally and custom.
