Brooks’ early sketches for new PFM merchandise designs
Artist Georgina Brooks Brings New PFM Designs to Life
Local artist Georgina Brooks grew up with art and food interwoven throughout her life. Her passion and skills were a perfect match for Portland Farmers Market. We asked her to create designs for our new tote bag and T-shirt, and she blew us away. The images Georgina cultivated tap into her memories and speak to the shared experiences we all have, from the smell of an herb to the sight of fresh fruit in the summer.
