How Art World Insiders Started Their Must-See Collections - Refinery29

Chrissy Crawford was working as a full-time art advisor and independent curator when she came up with the idea to start LittleCollector. Clients and friends frequently asked her to find art for their children's rooms — something that was special and unique, yet affordable. Surprised by how difficult this was to find, Chrissy began thinking about ways to engage children with contemporary art from a young age. It was at this point that LittleCollector was born! Chrissy is also the Founder of ArtStar and lives in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood with her Dachshund, Brian. 

Artwork by Mickalene Thomas, Lisa Levy, Laura Ball, Laurie Simmons, Ryan McGinness, Ai Shinohara Jim Jocoy, Charlie Engman, and Julie Heffernan.
