Top 7 list of my favorite artists

March 10, 2017





I know I have a growing following of young artists, so I wanted to let you know that I also learn a lot from other creatives. At some point or another, I’ve utilized these people’s knowledge of art, business and inspiration. Simply put, they’re awesome sauce!


If you’re just beginning and don’t even know where to start, start here with this list! Most, if not all of these artists are on YouTube. So by doing a simple search you should be able to find them.


  1. Mark Carder – Realism

    • He’s a master of realism plus he has many videos that show you how to learn realism. You can find his videos on YouTube, but I prefer his website.

  2. Lisa from Lachri Fine Art – Business and realism

    • Lisa teaches you important techniques on realism and gives you business tips.

  3. Katie Jobling – Business and art tips

    • This girl is such an inspiration too. She teaches you a bit of everything, from art, business, Etsy, etc.

  4. Happy D. – Inspirational and business

    • It’s easy to see why she has a growing following, not only does she do amazing work; she also gives great advice on art, business, inspiration. It’s very enjoyable to just listen to her!

  5. Robin Clonts – Art tips

    • She’s freaking funny!

  6. Lindsay Weirich (the frugal crafter) – Inspiration, fun art activities stuff, entertainment.

  7. Gwenn Seemel – A bit of everything

    • Gwenn has a blog where she really makes you think about your artwork, what you’re producing and how you’re communicating it to the world. While I don’t agree with everything she says, I do still find useful information that relates to me. She was also the very first artist I started to follow and the one that made me believe that making a living as an artist was possible.


I hope you find this list useful, and good luck in your journey!
