Brandi Milne was born in America in the late 1970’s and was raised surrounded by classic cartoons, toys, candies, Disneyland and joyous family holidays, which fascinated and deeply influenced her young imagination. Self-taught and emotionally driven, Brandi's work speaks of love, loss, pain and heartbreak underneath a beautiful candy-coated surface. Using elements as language from her child's mind, Brandi creates a unique and surreal world that is undeniably hers.

 

Being raised in a devoutly religious household, she has been exploring the higher purpose and sense of things for the most part of her life. Turning inwards and focusing on honing her artistic skills during her college years, Brandi Milne’s artistic expression portrays the rich pool of emotions that she garners, in the hope of “connecting the dots” and finding answers to some of the questions we pose to ourselves.

 

Although we all may explore the depth of our emotions, question where we are heading and the sense of it all, Brandi Milne does it through an alluring and stunning set of paintings. Her talent has been mostly fuelled by her own desire to push herself and progress, learning from what the other artists would tell her. Her vivid pieces are filled with emotional details that give us an insight into the artist’s character, often balancing between joy and sorrow.

 

Playful and light at first sight, the paintings of Brandi Milne investigate the depths of her emotion and character, as she finds herself often between the oppositions of emotional tides. Embodying both ends of the spectrum, the feelings she portrays can be found both in obvious depictions and tiny details, making the story of her canvas one easily capturing and relatable. Candy-coated and permeated with a bit of humor, the artist’s pieces will attract you and introduce you to the person that is Brandi Milne.

 

Brandi's work is celebrated and supported in fine art galleries and museums internationally and across the US, and has been featured in both written and online publications such as Hi Fructose and Bizarre Magazine. She published her first book So Good For Little Bunnies in 2008 and her second, Frohlich, in 2014, both with Baby Tattoo Books. Brandi has collaborated with many companies including Hurley, Billabong, Disney, Sugarpill Cosmetics and Acme Film Works for CVS Pharmacy.
