Our Favorite Places to Find Art Online
Obviously, as an art major, my first instinct is to make all of my own art. Because every time I see a painting I like, I end up thinking, hmmm wonder if I could do that? But the catch is that a lot of the time, I don't. I have a lot of paintings from undergrad that I love, and my infamous giant coffee painting, but sometimes it's much more convenient to find art that someone else has made. Also its GREAT to support artists. They don't get enough credit, and its really hard to establish a career as an artist!
Aside from your local art fairs, boutiques, and thrift stores, I wanted to round up a few favorite places to find some really cool pieces online!
I'm so excited to be working with Shanna on a collab right now! I'll be posting one of her paintings tomorrow, but be on the lookout for a giveaway in the next week or so!! She's so nice! And her paintings are awesome!! I love the cacti!
She is so talented and will work with you for custom pieces if there isn't something available that you like in her shop!
Be sure to give her a follow on Instagram (here!) to stay up to date on her latest work!
If you don't have a specific favorite artist, but you know you want to support artists, at any price point, without having to go through a middle man, try searching Etsy!
This is one of my favorite Etsy shops to peruse! They're a great source for some more modern/contemporary works that you can have printed and then put in a frame and hang!
I got my often-featured-on-my-Instagram Banff print from Society 6 and I loooooooove it! The print itself was a great price, and then I got a really simple black frame from target to hang it in.
OU has some really great, eclectic, boho, trendy pieces that I think are great home accents if you're trying to add some of the latest accent styles into your home.
I just found this site while I was doing research for this post, but how cool are some of these items?!
This one can be a little hit or miss on the affordability scale, but I like to set the price scale to $1-$100 and have found some really cool art!
Again, this is one that I would sort them from low to high and filter to "Under $250," but One Kings Lane is one of my favorite sources for art inspo, home ideas, and is really one of my big furniture source goals.
