Little Love Art
Christian Dakin Brown
♥ After teaching Art, Design and Fashion for twelve years in the leafy Cheshire suburbs, Christian made the move to the Hampshire coast. After deliberating going back into full time teaching, she decided that creating little works of he'art' by the sea was much more enticing. And so her business, Little Love Art, was created.
Texture and pattern, in conjunction with her memories, have always been an inspiration to her art work. Her porcelain collection developed after inheriting lace and crochet pieces made by her grandmother. Mesmerised by the exquisite intricacies of these beautifully hand craftedpieces, she began experiments to connect her own work with that of her family.
......And then her little miracle boy arrived. One particular photograph was very close to her heart, of her husband and little boy when he was minutes old. It wasn't the best quality photo but 'needing' the image on her wall as a visual reminder of that beautiful moment, she revisited silhouette ideas developed whilst on a screen printing module at University, and set about turning it into a work of art that she could cherish every day.
And so she diversified into creating personalised silhouette images and generic prints that she creates on the days that she doesn’t want to get her hands dirty with clay. A match made in heaven!
Over the past few years, Christian has produced many commissioned pieces and limited edition giclee prints. Her style and work is becoming recognised and she is very proud to have one of her Beach scenes in the NEXT Spring collection 2015. She is incredibly excited to continue to develop her work and designs over the forthcoming years ♥.
