Artist Spotlight | 10 Artists I am Loving

The older I have gotten the more interested I have become in art.  There are so many amazing artists out there.  I wanted to share a few artists and their work that I am loving.  I tend to gravitate towards more abstract and modern art, I know everyone likes different art but these are a few artist's whose work I am swooning over. 

 Miles just painted this figure for us and I just adore it.   The detail in person is even more gorgeous.

I am lucky to call Ann one of my best friends.  She just recently started her Etsy shop and is super talented.  Plus her prices are very reasonable.  These are two of my favorite paintings she has done.

I would love to own one of Kerry's pieces for my home.   She does amazing abstract work.

I originally became a fan of Jenny's thru her blog.  Now I am obsessed with her artwork.  I own a small piece that is hanging in Frances Moon's room.  She does beautiful abstracts but I am loving her new jelly fish series.

Miles introduced me to this artist and I love her style especially the faces.  When I re-do Frances Moon's room I definitely plan on using one!

Raven is a local Charleston artist and I was just introduced to her work.  I immediately fell in love with it- especially the girl with flowers series.  She is actually releasing a whole new batch of them today at 9:30 am!

Katie is also a dear friend of mine.  Her art is incredible I would love to own a nude and abstract one day soon!

Lindsay not only does gorgeous paintings but also wallpaper, textiles and pillows.  I am 100% obsessed with her wallpaper and need to find a use for it.

Marquin actually did a beautiful painting for us.  It was in our dining room but I just moved it to our den and I am loving it there.  She does some beautiful abstract landscapes.  She also has some cool pillow covers, cocktail napkins and even pacis made with her art!

I came across Susie thru Instagram and immediately began following her. She has the cutest family, her two sons are gorgeous just like her.  She paints at beach and I love the vibe it gives her art.  It all feels peaceful and relaxing to me.

If you can't afford the real thing, One Kings Lane has some fabulous prints and other options.  Most of these are 50-70% off and come already framed and ready to hang.  I bought a Teil Duncan print from OKL , that I love.

Thanks for the mention, Natalie! I hope to meet you when I move to your neck of the woods, which will hopefully be in the Spring. :)

As soon as I started reading your post I wondered if Lindsay Cowles would be featured! We went to high school together and although I didn't know her I've followed her career with interest. So impressed by what she's accomplished. I'd like a few of the pillows along with the wallpaper!

I follow a handful of these ladies on insta and a bunch of other artists. And so many of them seem to be from Charleston! Blakely Little is there, she paints a lot of low country marsh scene that you might like. I love that jellyfish piece!
