As an art adviser and independent curator, Chrissy Crawford was accustomed to clients and friends asking her to find art for their children's rooms. When Crawford had a hard time finding a store or gallery with unique, affordable pieces, she decided to start her own. LittleCollector is a virtual gallery committed to inspiring the next generations of art lovers with contemporary, limited-edition art that looks just as stylish in the living room as it does in your toddler's bedroom. Each art print is made to last — archival pigments are printed according to museum-quality specifications on acid-free paper — and comes framed and ready to hang (complete with a hanger and nail). An authenticity card containing the artist's signature and the edition number is mounted on the back of each piece.
The art here may have been created for kids, but we're betting that you'll love it just as much as they do. Brighten your tot's room — or any room — with these colorful framed prints by some of today's leading artists and illustrators (Matthew Carden and John Nickle, just to name a few). You'll find stylish renderings of cars, animals, robots, and more. LittleCollector founder Chrissy Crawford chose her five favorite prints, and reveals the artists' motivations behind each one here.
