Faves: EBSQ & Bestbooks

Etsy has attracted some fabulous self-representing artists. Not only providing art and craft at excellent prices, cutting out any annoying middlemen, producing gallery quality art you can pass down through the family in a plethora of styles and subject matter. How excellent is that?!!

So, it's difficult to pick favorites, I have a list that's a few hundred items long. But, Elis Cooke, a rock star of an artist herself, was able to create a beautiful Etsy Treasury with fabulous works of art available from Etsy artists - but I'd swear they were worthy of The Met. Click on the image to view until Sunday, February 24th.

Into the Blystic - Elis Cooke Original Art
Not only is her art some of the most beautiful I've ever seen, she is a wonderful supporter of my art! Most of her pieces have an ethereal quality that looks like it comes so easily from her being - absolutely awing and extremely humbling. Specializing in Mixed Media, Handmade Paper Collage, Abstract, Bookarts and Monotypes. Enjoy her work by clicking on the banner below:
