Hello there! I'm Christi Brittain, the owner of Freckles N Toes Boutique. I am a PNW artist and creator and mother to two amazing kids. I started Freckles N' Toes Boutique as a way to inspire other local artisans to dream big by offering a low cost and low risk way to reach customers that are looking for unique items. In the store you can find all of my artwork for purchase along side of many talented PNW creators.
A little about me... I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, 5 minutes away from the roaring waves of the Oregon coast. I feel like I have a little salt water in my veins and nature is where I feel the most connected. I have been making art for as long as I can remember. I started with black and white pencil drawings as a young girl, with my focus being on portraits of people and animals. In my teen years a began creating pottery and dabbling in clay sculpture. After I had my second child I discovered acrylic paint and fell in love instantly. Most recently, I have been creating digital artwork which allows me to play with drawing and painting techniques at the same time.
I now live in Vancouver, Washington with my husband, kids, and fur-babies. My experience working as a Sign Language Interpreter and Social worker drive my inner advocate, which often shows up in my artwork. One constant throughout my artistic journey is my focus on social justice, and the empowerment of women and girls. Creating artwork is one of my most valuable forms of self care and expression.
I hope that you enjoy the boutique and feel inspired by these talented local creators and their unique treasures!
