Southern California artist Brandi Milne was born in Anaheim, 1976. She grew up happily, surrounded by a wealth of inspiration as a child, taking pleasure in classic cartoons, crayons, coloring books, Sid and Marty Kroft creations, toys, candies and the kitschy fabrics and notions of the times.
Self-taught and emotionally driven, Milne’s work speaks of love, loss, pain and heartbreak in the first person. She decorates it oddly with a wink of humor and a delicious candy-coat finish – a combination that can be considered highly addictive to viewers around the world.
Milne’s work is celebrated and supported in fine art galleries across the US, and has been featured in both print and online publications such as Hi-Fructose Magazine, Babyboss Magazine and Juxtapose.com. She published her first book So Good for Little Bunnies in summer of 2008 with Baby Tattoo Books, and has collaborated with notable companies including 686, Hurley, Billabong and Acme Film Works for CVS Pharmacy.Â Milne has recently exhibited her work in the Bristol City Museum (UK) as part of Corey Helfor Gallery’s “Art from the New World along with the cream of the crop in the New Contemporary. She is currently working on a variety of projects, which includes some upcoming solo shows.
