Timothy Westbrook has a brain full of ideas that resemble the result of a dance party attended by Alexander McQueen, Tim Burton, Pixar storytellers, and L.L.Bean product testers. In his art, events, and "T. L. Brooke" ready-to-wear line, he effortlessly blends environmental sustainability, fairytales, and social advocacy into a playful package.
He was born in the foothills of the Northern Adirondack Mountains in Wanakena, NY. Education took him took him to Syracuse University and his professional studio practice to him to Milwaukee, WI for over three years after graduating. Timothy Westbrook Studio is now back on the east coast, currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
Westbrook holds the titles of 2014 National Fossil Day First Place Artist, one of Syracuse University's 2011 Sustainability Fellows, GreenBiz NYC Conference 2013 “One Great Idea” speaker, and the “Sustainicorn” of Project Runway Season 12. He was also the first out-of-state, non-painting, and youngest ever Artist-in-Residence at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, WI.
In third grade Timothy coordinated a local Halloween party and costume contest at the town Presbyterian Church with prizes collected from local businesses. He coordinated advertising with the local paper and public school. Costumes and fashion have run parallel with many of his events.
After graduating college he found his way into the bridal industry by way of alterations at David's Bridal. This led to three years of bridal gown consulting. Blending his in depth knowledge of the wedding industry with his seven years of professional event planning experience, wedding day and month of coordination was a natural evolution. With a love for traditions and family, Westbrook brings a personal touch, unique to his genuine and caring disposition.
A note from Timothy:
"I've been in the box [on television] but I'm still just a person, easy to get in touch with and easy to talk to. I can't wait to hear about you to have a chance for the path of our journeys to overlap!"
