The Best Places to Find Affordable Art these Days


Much to the dismay of my partner, I’m always moving things around in my house and finding new nooks and crannies to redecorate. Perhaps it’s because I’m craving a new project or that I’m just getting a little restless! I’ve been thinking a lot about picking up and moving to the country, which gets my mind going in a million directions. I’ve been pondering – should we buy or should we build? How many new pieces of furniture will we need for our larger space? What types of art will we need to purchase for our cascading blank walls? What STYLE do I want to bring into this new space? All of these questions led me back to the core of why I love interiors: they are a reflection of who we’ve been and who we are becoming. Nothing speaks more truth to this than the art we bring into our homes. Since we are forever on a budget, I put together an eclectic list of inspiring artists that are creating and selling affordable art online right now. If you’re looking for that special piece or hoping to complete your gallery wall, look no further we have you covered! I always love hearing what new artists are catching people’s eye, let us know who you’re loving on in comments below. We will add them to our list for future features!
