About Brandi


Brandi Milne was born and raised in the small town of Anaheim, California. Throughout her upbringing Brandi was exposed to the sounds and sights of the 1970’s, through the still pumping family 8-track as well as her mother’s wardrobe of flowing paisley. This love of the funk was later mated with a curiosity and respect for the fashion and culture of the Far East. Her artwork represents a melding of two very different genres that seem to feel curiously at home together. Brandi is a self-taught artist who makes her own rules and is not confined by what is expected. She favors beauty and aesthetic over any message or propaganda. Her favored media is acrylic and ink, but as of late has become heavily involved in hand sewing various plush creatures. She is also currently working on writing and illustrating her first book, which will be out late 2007. Brandi has been involved in the L.A. art scene for over four years and has shown in many of the area’s biggest galleries, including Gallery 1988, La Luz de Jesus, and the Corey Helford Gallery. She has shown in countless group shows, including numerous Create:Fixate and Cannibal Flower events, and has her first solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery in December of 2007 (to be followed by solo shows with Copro Nason and Thinkspace over the coming years).

"When I first saw Brandi’s work it reminded me the kinds of images that made my imagination fly as a child - like a resolutely modern take on the golden age of illustration but combined with her own unique style. She weaves candy, blood and heartbreak into her intimate and emotionally charged world."

Gorgeous. I love the whimsical feeling of this. Very nice work.

Love the work and your statement. I'm sure you hear the unfortunate term "fantasy art" a lot, but you have a beautiful take on the genre. I can't wait to see more.

INNOVATION PLUS .WELL DONE.

well to comment in terms a little more intelligent that eigth grade slang... very well done. I love the use of warm colors. Both are interesting pieces to look at it.
