Design and Décor
Strange House is a place for original paintings and occasionally some strangely beautiful objects and home adornments.
I'm Courtney Seabrooks, an abstract expressionist painter who started creating for interiors. I've collected and designed in my own home for years and have a passion for it. I have an extensive background in film production which also nurtures my love for design and composition. I've always needed a better place to experiment with art suited for one of a kind spaces. I'm inspired by mid-century and post modern lines, Bauhaus minimalism, Brutalism, Scandinavian design, and earth's natural lines, textures, and materials.
Strange House paintings radiate all of the energy that I pour into them as well as the years of refining my practice and hours of technique and original ideas that go into each piece. They are raw, full of texture and paint strokes, and come from a place of pure inspiration and feeling.
Most importantly, I am a mother. I have so much love for my daughter, Mila (Camilla Gold). It's an insane feeling to see her smile and has informed my process of artmaking more than anything else. My husband, Keith, photographs the large scale paintings and manages print making, and so much else.
Your encouragement and purchases are keeping it going. Thank you all for trusting me into your lives and homes and joining us as we grow.
