Tsk Tsk {Australia}

October 18, 2007

I think all this exposure to Australian artists via Etsy has been a great learning experience for me, as I’d not been exposed to design down under much at all until design blogs and etsy popped up.

Tsk Tsk {Australia}
I love the crafts and art from this beautiful country, I’m always searching Etsy for Aussie artists because I am drawn to their design aesthetic every time – it’s so modern and fresh. One shop I check often is Tsk Tsk, have you heard of it? This lady is crazy for Russian nesting dolls, she features them in nearly all of her work lately and I love seeing how she translates a popular design motif into art, cushions, and other cutie things. I first heard about her last summer and have enjoyed watching her online adventures with Etsy grow and prosper.

    Those little nesting dolls are great aren’t they? I might pick up one myself :)

    thank you so much for the mention. I can’t wait for 2008. I have so much I’m yearning to do.

    Tiel’s work is fantastic! She sent me one of her paintings as a prize, and I love it. So pleased you have discovered her. And i must say that I am also blown away by the fantastic design coming out of Australia. should you happen to come across one, Vogue Living Australia is always a treat.

    I love Tiel’s work – I just received my second matryoshka artwork from her and I’m absolutely smitten!

    Just discovered Tiel’s work and I love the fabric dolls and prints. Please make more — they seem to be sold out on your site! Read an interview where Tiel quoted Lewis Carroll discussing ‘many impossible things before breakfast’. Refreshing and inspiring.
