Blakely Little (SACI Alum, Spring 2013) launches Blakely Made, a new collection for Anthropologie
Blakely Made, a collection recently launched on Anthropologie, includes kitchen items, housing décor, coin purses, IPhone cases, and more. Each item is emblazoned with patterns and images depicting Little's signature coastal style and use of bright, cheerful colors. The project was a year-long collaboration between the artist and Anthropologie, and Blakely Made creations can now be purchased on the store’s website.
The launch of Blakely Made is just the latest of Little’s recent success. After studying abroad at SACI, she took the plunge and became a full-time artist, quickly becoming known for her costal and marshland paintings of seascapes, marinas, and marshlands, all inspired by her surroundings in Charleston, SC. She often creates on-site crayon sketches that are then turned into larger, elaborate pieces, and her style has become recongizable as her career has quickly grown. A prolific artist, her many works demonstrate her seemingly endless stream of ideas.
Little has exhibited in many individual and group shows. Her most recent exhibition, The Color of Home, was dedicated to filling the blank spaces of the gallery with the colors of home and images of “swaying sailboats, marinas, sparkling water, and sunsets”– a project completed in collaboration with Farrow & Ball, Basic Projects, and Celadon.
