The work of artist and designer David Carter Brown is rooted in the rich tradition of American Folk Art. Inspired by this artistic legacy, David re-explores classic American imagery in his art, prints and posters and designs, retaining a sense of past and adding his own unique point of view.
In his artwork and home furnishings collections, David creates designs that reflect his passion for authentic country imagery. By combining classic patterns and motifs with his timeless images, he forms his own unique view of American country design. Ranging in subject matter from the historical to the whimsical, Davidís art, prints and posters celebrates the past. Working in traditional materials, he combines age-old techniques, imbuing his work with the textures and patina of antiques.
The images in his art, prints and posters are taken from scenes of a romanticized world, with which he creates his own personal vision of an idealized America. Born in New York City, David, after attending Parsons School of Design, began his career producing handcrafted and hand-painted designs in the Folk Art tradition. Since then he has produced many licensed collections in wall coverings, china, and accessories, all in the country style. Working from his studio in the rolling hills of Millbrook, New York, David is constantly inspired by his rural surroundings, rich in the traditions of farming and American country life.
