Shortly after graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, Mary Little’s work entered the permanent collections of the Vitra Design Museum in Basel and Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. It wasn’t until a few years later after establishing herself in London, that magazine cover stories describing her first collection of chairs, “….the quality of which make them appropriate as art objects…”, that Mary established her reputation as an accomplished artist. Throughout her career she has created public art works, private commissions and production design. She moved to San Francisco in 2001 to take up a teaching position at California College of the Arts (CCA). And now in Los Angeles her latest work has evolved to become increasingly abstract, exploring themes of landscape, pattern and repetition.
Her work has been acquired by private collections in Europe and North America, as well as public collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
