Books: LeeAnn Brook talks about art and inspiration

LeeAnn Brook’s new book about the creative process, “Points of Inspiration: An Artist’s Journey with Painting and Photography,” is her personal story about how one medium inspired another, offering glimpses into her studio as well as her personal vision. Steeped in the art world for more than 40 years, the contemporary landscape painter and photographer explores the process of creating her vivid work.

She will share her book at 7 p.m. Monday, July 20, at Village Books, 1200 11th St.

With a foreword by award-winning writer Molly Fisk, and featuring more than 140 images of Brook’s painting and photography, the book is a thoughtful conversation about creativity. An award-winning painter, photographer and graphic designer, Brook lives in the Sierra foothills arts community of Nevada City, Calif. In addition to being a guest speaker in the arts and a painting workshop presenter, she is the writer, designer, photographer, artist and publisher of her new book.
