Shawn Stucky


Chicago-based Shawn Stucky rocks. I love his three-color hand pulled screen prints and since he’s color blind, I’m that much more amazed by his fantastic color combinations and works…

Lou’s

This is one of those finds, that once you’ve discovered it, you almost don’t want to share… But I have to because Lou’s is the best! I love to sew and have this mini addiction to Japanese craft books. Imelda sent me the best Zakka crafty book over the summer and I still can’t keep my hands off of it. Lou is currently offering FREE worldwide shipping on her books right now straight from Japan, so you should shop her store ASAP!

Rachel Austin


Paintings by Rachel Austin, on Etsy! Great art from a lovely seller starting at only $25. You have to visit her website, she has a beautiful portfolio, you’ll enjoy browsing it. Rachel?s paintings invoke a sense of untouched beauty, simple yet bold, but never over the top. I love the shapes and colors that she uses, and in addition to her oil paintings, she uses various other mediums, such as watercolor and mixed media. Her oil paintings are my favorites though, just look at these, stunning!

Rainy Prints

I love the look of Rainy Prints, who create these really nice hand-pressed linoleum cuts. So affordable, too. See the process to printmaking here on the Rainy blog. I love this blog – a teaching blog. I’d love to find more blogs that explain a process, like how to sew, reupholster furniture, how to get started on a letterpress, textile design, etc. I know they would be very time consuming, and most small business owners do not have the time to blog about their work in addition to create, market, ship, deal with customers, present at shows, etc. That’s why a blog like Rainy Prints is so unique and special to me. Do you know of any process oriented blogs on said topics?
