Brooker approaches art-making as an inventive process of developing and working through ideas. His colorful abstractions express a joyous, spiritual energy and a spontaneity that the artist relates to the harmonies of jazz music. Brooker writes, “Formally, I attempt to create visual harmonies and jazz is often a metaphor. My work is really a celebration of life.”

Among other honors, Brooker received the 2010 Governor’s Hazlett Memorial Award for Artist of the Year by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Temple University’s Tyler School of Arts. He is currently a professor emeritus at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia.
