When she is not speed skating, Brooklyn is an artist that specializes in watercolour, mixed media and digital art.
Art has always been a large part of Brooklyn's life, and she has been lucky to grow up surrounded by amazing artists that have inspired her to create. Brooklyn's grandfather was a woodcarver, while her grandmother was a multi-media artist. Both of them encouraged Brooklyn to pursue art throughout grade school, including Advanced Placement art in high school.
Throughout university, Brooklyn was very busy and took time away from art to focus on her BSc in Biology. Since graduating, art has become an integral part of Brooklyn's life, and a great balance for speed skating.
Brooklyn currently volunteers as the Creative Director for Skate4Kids, a charity event being held at the Olympic Oval on August 13, 2023 to raise money for the expansion of the Paediatric Mental Health Unit at the Alberta Children's Hospital.
