I stumbled upon all five of these artists while surfing the pages of Etsy.com. If you have yet to visit Etsy, I highly recommend it. There is so much undiscovered talent there.
Cindy Thornton - I can remember the day I discovered her artwork. I was sitting in my contracts class next to my good friend Sam. I pushed my laptop over to him and he said: "Hey her paintings look a lot like yours..." So true my friend. Cindy has an incredible style and her work continues to inspire and amaze me.
A fellow Valparaiso resident, Vincent Leman is the artistic genius behind Dust Furniture
Julie Beck, her work is flawless and reminds me of small town America.
An artist I only know as: pygletwhispers, an Australian artist who creates the most amazing doodles.
Mandy Budan - Unique, abstract landscapes that boggle my mind and mess with my eyes.
