Southern California artist Brandi Milne was born in Anaheim in 1976. She grew up happily, surrounded by a wealth of inspiration as a child, taking pleasure in classic cartoons, crayons and coloring books, Sid and Marty Kroft creations, toys, candies and the kitschy fabrics and notions of the times.
Selft-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 candied-coat finish – a combination that can be considered highly addictive to viewers around the world.
Brandi’s work is celebrated and supported in fine art galleries across the US, has been featured in both written and online publications such as Hi Fructose Magazine, Babyboss Magazine and Juxtapos.com. She published her first book So Good For Little Bunnies in summer 2008 with Baby Tattoo Books and has collaborated with many companies including 686, Hurley, Billabong and Acme Film Works for CVS Pharmacy.
Brandi is currently continuing her role as a featured artist for Hurley as well as working on clothing designs, collaborating with a high-profile rock star couple and plotting her next solo show in 2010.
