Etsy Art I Heart

September 17, 2013

I’ve taken a few art classes at the local junior college on painting and color theory and really want to take more, but it seems I forget to enroll with each new semester, so I have to live out my dream vicariously through the talented artists I find on Etsy. 

Art can be a jumping off point for an entire room’s design, whether it’s the palette or subject matter. Art in all its mediums is subjective, but I always say if you’re truly drawn to a piece it has touched something deep inside and you should make it yours (budget permitting). I love discovering artists from all around the world on Etsy and the fact that this forum and community makes it possible for artists to sell their creative works to the world.

Etsy is one of the first places I turn when I want to fill a wall, so today I’m starting a series (probably irregular and on a whim) that features prints, photographs, paintings, and artists you might consider for your growing collection. All of these prints would be cool in the right spaces, let’s get started with today’s favorites! 

Watercolor botanicals at The Joy of Color.

Beautiful pressed leaf prints at Flat Flower Designs.

Do you have a favorite shop on Etsy where you’ve purchased original art?  I’d love to know about it!

    Keep up the great work, I so enjoy the morning inspiration!

  3. Wow! I love this series (whim or regular)! I always hear of people buying art on Etsy but I’ve never tried. I have a wall in my sun room that needs art work and now I’m headed straight to Etsy to fill it. Thanks for sharing your favorites!

    Oops! Cozamia is not an Etsy shop. Sorry about that, I am not allowed to make morning comments before my coffee/tea anymore….=)

  6. Love, love the abstract landscapes! Thanks for sharing this posting. As you know, I am a big fan of using art in rooms. So this all is a valuable resource for all of us.

    I love drooling over Etsy art! My husband and I just bought a house, so I’ve been using the chance to update my wall decor. I just bought four prints for my home office from ObviousState, which is a shop filled with literary quote posters. I had the hardest time choosing just four!

    What a lovely group of artists from Etsy! I have so many favorites: Laura Amiss, Corrine Gala Fine Art, to name a few. I am actually an artist myself so it is always a great source of inspiration to see all the talented artists on Etsy, and did I mention that I have a little Etsy art shop of my own? Clever Fig Studios is the name, please feel free to stop by and say hello!

  18. CentsationalGirl says:

    Thanks for sharing Cathy’s work Kylie, she is wonderful!

    Ha ha Kathy! I love the vibrant prints at Cozamia too!

    My son is an artist-his ETSY is a bit bare right now( that’s a good thing !) but

    here’s a link to his FB page as well-https://www.facebook.com/MfrancoArt

    He concentrates on portraits done in oil paints , but also does watercolor landscapes/cities ( they are somewhat less expensive). Hopefully he can make a living with it :)

    I too like finding original art on Etsy. Photography, specifically travel photography, has become my latest obsession. A couple of my favorite shops are Eye Poetry Photography and the Paris Print Shop. Vita Nostra and Melanie Alexander are fantastic as well.

    Oh I love the abstract landscapes!

    I have only at one time bought some prints. From Despina who ownes thelittlefox. I fell in love with her Little Prisoner series and I bought a original doll she handpainted. After that I bought 4 of her prints (Fairytale series) and the Little Prisoner series as postcards.

    I’m currently lusting after Flower Vision. A print from Elsita. I think the limited editions will be sold before I can buy one :(.

    My sister purchased a piece from Parima earlier this year, just to tie her room together. It is “stop you in your tracks” perfect for the room.

  37. gisele says:

    There are some of them that individually I didn’t like that much, but all together hanging in the wall is beautiful !!!

  38. Erin says:

    Quail Lane Press on etsy is amazing for beautifully hand pressed maps and other items.

    Brittney Lee (britsketch on Etsy — http://www.etsy.com/shop/britsketch) is terrific. We framed a trio of her birdie prints a couple of years ago and love them.

    I, too, love your Etsy discoveries. I have such a hard time choosing who and what to look at on Etsy – so many choices! Love Flat Flower Design’s work.

  43. Melissa Lim says:

    LOVE the Anna See collection! I have some of her animal prints! LOVE the colors!

  44. Alicia says:

    I’ve loved Sarah Jane Studios ever since I saw the boy swimming with a whale print hanging in your son’s room. At the time I contacted Sarah Jane to see if she had a similar print with a little girl, and while she didn’t she agreed to create one! I love it so much and have since bought several more prints from her. She’s also designed a collection of fabrics sold under the Michael Miller banner, and I’ve used several patterns on projects for my daughter. They are all so cute.

    LOVE the Anna See prints!! Such great colors!

  47. PL says:

    Really really enjoyed this. I have no vision to do things with art so really do rely on others to come up with ideas plus the art. Thank you for the article and the ideas…PL

    Kate- I like the artist Kendra Baird (even though her work is way out of my budget)
    http://www.etsy.com/search?q=kendra%20baird&view_type=gallery&ship_to=US&ref=auto3
    This artist is not on Etsy but I do love this work http://rogerdisney.com

  49. CentsationalGirl says:

    Thanks so much Rachel (and everyone) !
    It’s so nice to get all of these incredible recommendations for great art.

  50. What did we do before Etsy? It’s my favorite source for unique items and artwork. I fell in love with Sharon Montrose’s American Buffalo print but it’s out of my price range, so I searched for buffalo photos on Etsy. I found one that I liked but it didn’t quite fit my needs as-is, so I worked with the seller to have it converted from color to B&W, and cropped in. Now it’s the perfect in-your-face art for my small powder room!

    Love this! I bought old sheet music on etsy last year and framed it in classic black frames. The whole project was less than $150 and filled a large wall in my apt.

  52. patricia villamil says:

    This is a beautiful and unique curated post. I have now discovered new art favorites in Etsy. Thanks for the marvelous post and your generous time.

  53. Verónica says:

    Fantastic post,
    this blog is amazing!!! :)

  54. I’ve been slowly collecting Anna See’s work. She’s definitely one of my favorites for her fantastic use of color. Nice finds here!

  55. Wendy says:

    Thank you so much for sharing! I ordered 6 prints from Flat Flower designs. The pictures of the prints don’t do them justice! They are absolutely gorgeous in my daughters bed room! Andy was very nice and I received them in a couple days!
