I’m in the process of compiling this year’s Top 50 Etsy Moms, which is one of my favorite features every year. Of course it’s an overwhelming task to sift through the countless Etsy shops — all bursting with ingenuity and mind-blowing talent — but it’s also one of the greatest reminders of the creativity around us every day. Yet I kept finding myself bummed when a shop owner isn’t a parent (since the piece is about Etsy moms), so I figured I’d highlight some of the incredible artists I’ve come across — both parents and non-parents.
It used to be that you’d have to go to an art gallery to find talented local artists, yet now we can find original, beautiful art online — much in part to the art community on Etsy. Take a look at 20 incredible artists (who sell prints of their work for reasonable prices) on Etsy:
