brandimilne When I got my start in the lowbrow art scene I was bright eyed and bushy tailed. I started off on the ground floor in weekend art exhibitions and underground art events. I was so stoked to be showing my work and excited by the positive feedback I received. In those days social media had little to do with getting your artwork seen - you really had to go to the shows to meet the people you wanted to meet and see the art you wanted to see. I was painfully shy and had to push through that at every event. I was invited to show in galleries from there, tiny little spaces that showed the work salon style because they were so small. I was stoked. In 2006 I met Jan Helford who was in the process of building and opening her gallery @coreyhelfordgallery. In December 2007 I had my very first solo show titled "Sugar & Silence". At that point I had been showing for 3 years and was over the moon and honored to be offered my own show. I still feel that way now. This is my "Candyland" collage that stretched across 10 feet of the gallery wall. Each piece sold separately and I kept the Candyland :) #gratefulheart #coreyhelfordgallery #brandimilne #candyland @fistofthesoutherncross 1d

brandimilne My painting "Bonnet Top Poison" (acrylic & ink on wood) from 2010. This is a story about 3 wounded spirits saving the innocent from knowing the pain & ugliness of this world. A dark idea, yes. The setting for this and a few other paintings in this series was inspired by the movie The Wizard Of Oz - the skies before the movie turns to color, still inspire me greatly :) #brandimilne #coreyhelfordgallery #thewizardofoz 3w
