Finding The Best Online Art Sources
I get a lot of compliments on the pieces in our home and while I didn’t technically buy all of them online in the traditional sense – I certainly did discover all of the artists online.
The curated collection of art in our home is something I’m most proud of.
However, this does take time!
Best tips for buying art online.
My best tip for sourcing and discovering great pieces for your home is to follow a few artists on Instagram.
This is a great way to discover both established and emerging artists.
Instagram is a great way to discover so many fun and interesting things.
I love how the app generates new names based on those you already follow.
Many art galleries also have their own Instagram pages as well.
If you’re not sure who to follow, here’s some of my personal faves.
Amanda Talley (she painted the piece in our living room-top photo).
Kerri Rosenthal – she’s the artist who painted the bright yellow drippy heart painting in our foyer above.
Carter Kustera did the charming silhouettes in our front stairway. (You can read more about those three pieces here.)
*UPDATE as of February 2021* I’ve just added my own original fine art to Instagram!
I’d love for you to follow me here–> @suedechiara
This year I’m I’m hoping to acquire a few more pieces to fill the few remaining empty wall spaces we still have left.
My best tip, aside from measuring several times-is to really take your time with an art purchase and buy only what you truly love-regardless of colors or trends.
Over time, you’ll acquire your own curated selection which reflects your personal taste and style.
Personally, I also love to frame my kid’s art and sentimental mementos in lieu of a painting or print.
Vintage scarves and pieces of colorful printed fabric lend themselves best to this sort of project but as long as it’s meaningful, you can’t go wrong.
As always, hope you found these tips helpful!
