115 Etsy artists I love

This is going to be difficult.

There are SO many fantastic artists on Etsy (no wonder I'm always broke!). I have found some incredible painters and illustrators and other artists there that I would never have come across otherwise. I love checking out everyone else's favourites, so I thought I'd put together a list of my own.

I've tried to add in newer Etsy sellers where possible, and I've left out The Black Apple and Ashley G even though I adore their work, simply because everyone knows them already!

This is by no means a definitive list. It's just a bunch of artists whose work I enjoy - and I keep finding new faves everyday, so if there's someone you know that I haven't included, please add them in a comment so I can check them out!
