As many of you know I have a shop on Etsy where I sell my handmade journals and cards, hand knitted items, a few paintings and my photography. However, Etsy is not only for selling, but also for getting in touch with other talented artists. I am member of two great teams and one of them is the Rainbow Artists Team.
I would like to introduce some of the artists to you every now and then.
Please meet Gilly Thomas, a sculptor from New Ross in Ireland, who rather late came to sculpture and thoroughly enjoys it. You can see that in her art! This is my favorite piece from her beautiful shop - art that speaks to me:
Next up is Monika from TobisiasLilThing. She lives in Northumberland, England and is a jewelry and card maker. She uses beautiful colors in her artwork. Her jewelry is lovely, and what I really like is that she also makes fun little jewelry for children - like these bracelets that I would buy in a heartbeat if my girl was still little (and especially since she loves orange):
Then there's Kent Olinger. What can I say? His shop is filled with beautiful jewelry that gets its inspiration from wildlife, and I do think he especially likes crows and ravens. He lives on Vancouver Island in British Columbia and I suspect that he has nature right at his front door - at least that is how I remember this beautiful part in the world. His handcrafted silver and copper jewelry is unique. Since I love crows I'm drawn to this gorgeous piece:
Last but certainly not least there's Christina Goldstein from Florida. Due to health reasons she couldn't crochet anymore and now gives us beautiful paintings. It's often painful for her to paint - her shop also carries the name Art Through the Pain. Her paintings are colorful and uplifting. This one is my favorite:
I hope you have enjoyed this little wandering into some Etsy stores.
