Artists Who Inspire Me

When I moved into my new studio space last year, I knew I wanted to decorate my walls with artwork from other artists who inspire me. It was some of the most fun I’ve ever had shopping 🙂  I’m nowhere near done decorating my walls with inspiring artists (there are so, so, so many), but here is a little start to the list. Check out their shops!

Elle Moss Photography – I’ve been obsessing over this image for years. I’m so glad to finally have it on my wall.


Hello Small World – how cute are these bears riding a bike?!


Nine Dragons Photography – This golden Buddha helps keep me centered.


Light Plus Ink “She Wrote Nothing At All “- I love this artist portrait. It resonates deep and keeps me company when I’m feeling in need of inspiration.

light-plus-pink Tracey Capone Photography – Tracey’s wood blocks are *SO* cool.


Belles and Ghosts – This print speaks to my inner adventurer/dreamer. Belles and Ghost’s entire shop does, in fact.


Vintage by the Shore (displayed with Hello Small World’s print) – these prints are so fun!


Dull Blue Light – Peanut butter and chocolate chips. Yum, Yum, Yum. Dull Blue Light has the most beautiful still life photos.


Nine Dragons Photography (yes, I have TWO Nine Dragons Buddhas in my studio – they’re just that great!!)


Emily McDowell Studio – Emily McDowell is one of my artist/business heroes. I’ve been following her work for years, and it keeps inspiring me. Here are two cards of hers I look at




Amy Lighthall – I love this geometric mountain print.


 Judith Kimber Photo – How cool is this fish?? It’s blowing BUTTON BUBBLES.


Eye Poetry Photography – Beautiful horse photography.


Majali Design & Illustration – The Reader – This illustration just makes me smile. It brings me back to weekends as a kid coming home from the library with stacks of books and reading with my kitty next to me. (Okay, I still do that today.)



Raceytay – a fantastic selection of super cool photography.
