5 Faves: Best Etsy Shops for Art Prints and Originals


Back before I started papernstitch, I was an artist – a painter to be exact. And since all of my friends were artists too, we were constantly putting shows together and attending each other’s openings,  instead of  hanging out at bars and getting into trouble. So (obviously)  art has always had a big place in my heart. Still does. Which makes today’s 5 Faves that much more special…

1. Tastes Orangey

Clare Elsaesser is one of my favorite artists. Her paintings are beautiful. And her sewn prints are just as lovely. Tastes Orangey is definitely a shop to bookmark and come back to when you have time to browse (her shop is full of drool-worthy pieces). 15% off! Now through June 29th use the code HONEYMOON at checkout for 15% off.

2. Melissa Lund

Whimsical still life photography by Melissa Lund will catch your interest for more than just wall art. She also has a line of iPhone cases and laptop skins with her photos.

4. Y Instead of I

Sarah Parys’ shop is filled with altered book sculptures, hoop wall art, and (my favorite) embroidered maps.

Embroidered Maps: Copenhagen Denmark and Birmingham + Manchester

Toronto Map Embroidery

5. Conilab

Coni is a graphic designer living in Barcelona. And her work is one of my favorites for the column I write on Scoutie Girl, Art to Inspire. Each print is screen printed by hand and full of inspiration.

Hi Steph. Yes! I love Clare’s work. I don’t think I’ve posted links to my paintings here on the blog. I don’t paint much these days. So I don’t have anything new to show, unfortunately.

You included a few of my all-time favorites! There’s definitely something magical about Tastes Orangey. I also love Tush Tush and Oh My Cavalier (though it looks like she’s only carrying a limited selection in her Etsy shop right now).

Hi Robin. I’ll have to check out Tush Tush. I don’t think I know it. And good call on Oh My Cavalier. Great shop! Thanks for stopping by!

I love MaevChevrette on Etsy. Have one of her prints on my wall. Love her layers, mix of materials and distinctive style.
