Brent Cooke

Born in 1947 in Vancouver, BC, Brent discovered a love of carving at a young age, starting with wood relief, figures, stone carvings, and fine-detail decoys. In recent years he has also entered the bronze-casting field. The bronze works Brent produces are cast at Valley Bronze of Oregon, a foundry of fine repute that delivers consistently high calibre art of all sizes.

Brent’s work focuses on birds and sea creatures for the most part, with birds of prey being his favourite subjects. His pieces feature very fine detailing, and most represent a chase, the outcome of which is left to the viewer’s imagination. His use of negative space and ability to capture the essence of movement and interaction of his subjects has been widely complimented by art lovers at galleries and shows. Brent’s studio (CastArt Studio) is located in Victoria, BC.
