Etsy Art Highlights

I love Etsy, but I must say the thing that I love most about it is also what I hate. There is just too much. I know it's a wonderful problem to have, but it can be time consuming to search page after page of items and not find the perfect thing.

I figured others must be feeling the same thing so here is a round up of some of my favorite artists:

Art by Rodriguez


Hershberger & Huff Studios:



D Robart:




Jazz Green:



Valentina Design:



JKL Designs:



Sarah Giannobile:



Siliso:



Claire Nereim:



Rachel Austin:



There you go a mix of styles that are currently on my radar. Who is your favorite etsy artist?

I adore everything Claire Nereim does! I have her 'Seasonal Fruits of California' calendar in my kitchen and it always makes me smile. I also framed her oak leaf notecards for artwork in my guest bedroom. Check it out: http://meetmeinphiladelphia.blogspot.com/2010/09/new-guest-bedroom-artwork.html

I am an Etsyaholic- love it but as you said, it can be a little overwhelming. This is a great art run-down. I am crazy about the first artist- new to me and stunning! JKL design/Leigh Viner is my absolute favourite artist on etsy. I just finished a giveaway of her work and have ordered one of her prints supersized- can't wait for it to arrive.
I am going to spend some time on the weekend going through all of your suggestions- loved this!

This was a very helpful post. I cannot tell you how many times I decide to get some art from Etsy and I just get lost in the thousands of pages and then I just give up.

I loooove Etsy too, but when it comes to searching for art, I've been quasi converted to ugallery.com. A little more of a streamlined search, I think.

Ashley,

I have the seasonal fruits of california print in my kitchen too! I may not live on the west coast, but it's my little bit of west coast charm in my house.

This was fun to see. I love your taste in art... Have you ever attended the Etsy virtual labs? They are very informative! For example when they have the museum curators come in and reflect on the different pieces the sellers bring in the the lab.

Etsy can be SO overwhelming to me so I absolutely loved this post! My favorite is the abstract landscape — it almost looks like diamonds. I would LOVE to see more posts like this from you!
