Brooks was born in Maryville, Missouri, but was raised in Long Beach, California. Taking art classes at the University of Southern California and the Otis Art Institute, she developed an interest in etching. After marriage and busy with raising children she had little time to devote to her art. However, after an illness she was advised to resume her art work at the Stickney Art School in Pasadena, where she studied with Arthur Millier and E.Stetson Crawford. In 1934, Brooks won a prize from the Society of American Etchers for the "best piece of technical execution in pure etching." Her printmaking supported her entire family during the Depression. Brooks finest work was devoted to the etchings of trees which showed exceptional precision and beauty. Most of her major work was done during the 1930's.
