Brooke Budner is an illustrator, designer, jewelry maker, mixed media artist, carpenter and farmer. She lives on the west side of Orcas Island, where she and her partner manage a large garden and homestead and live in a tiny timber-framed home they constructed on wheels.
She studied painting and printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. After her formal art training she began to study and work in the field of ecological farming and started San Francisco’s first commercial Urban Farm, “Little City Gardens”. She is equally passionate about her studio art as she is about sustainable living and regenerative land stewardship and often finds ways to intertwine the two. In addition to designing for Printshop Northwest, she creates drawings, designs and logos for small-scale farms, and sustainable farming advocacy organizations. She has also illustrated books, related to ecology, food and farming.
