"When one looks at a portrait by Sarah Brokke, it's like meeting someone you've dreamt about—her paintings are at once familiar and fantastic—a step removed from our own reality. Brokke works in partnership with her subjects to honor their spirit and celebrate both the individual and the larger world in which they operate."—Annie Dugan, Director, Duluth Art Institute
This series was developed with the intent that she would paint each person as a symbol of gratitude and acknowledgement.
