Brooke McKinney, MA
Artist In Residence
Hello there! My name is Brooke McKinney. I am a born-and-raised Floridan currently living in Atlantic Beach. I graduated with from the University of North Florida and then went on to earn a masters degree in Arts In Medicine from the University of Florida. Art, nature, and holistic wellness are my passions. One of the greatest sources of purpose in my life is being an Artist in Residence. I am an avid believer that the arts are essential to our healing, health, and well-being. My hope is that through sharing the creative process with others, such as patients and their families, I can evoke a sense of well-being and wholeness within them. I also aspire to increase awareness and appreciation for the natural world and the animals who inhabit it. Creating art is my way to meditate, to relax, and to feel free. Here is my motto: Slow down, make or admire art, and savor a sunset!
