Bethanie Holley is the co-owner of my new favorite store, "The Rusty Bucket" located in downtown Spooner Wis. If you are up there this summer, you have to go, she has such cute stuff, and very reasonably priced (way better than the Kane County Flea Market) My son loves this truck, I may have to buy it. Her bird houses are very inventive and you can see more pictures on her flickr site.
I found Kerrera Skye on Etsy.com and I love her stuff. I love it that handmade knit apparel is becoming so trendy. Her real name is Shirley, but could not find a complete profile. However, here is the link to her blog.
Kathleen Frances is an artist I fell upon looking for Alice in Wonderland costumes. That's right she sews, but you'd never guess looking at all her photos. Not only does her site give away dresses or clothing all the time, she offers patterns and simply beautiful photography. I am already a fan.
Love this artists work as well. Catherine Hammerton creates these beautiful textile, mixed media pieces that all remind me of birds in flight, or pooling fish. They seem inspired by Japanese culture or vintage wallpaper, but then her wall pieces can be so modern and slightly minimalist. The best way to view her work is to just go to her site!
Karen Nicol has such great ideas for fashion and lace. Her lace work is so beautiful, and fun.
Jennifer Lake is an artist I found whose work is simple and fresh, but makes use of old buttons and plastic shapes
Shana Rae is a photographer I came across whose work is so beautiful. I want to be in this beautiful world these children are in. And at the same time it makes me think of winter.
Cassia Beck not only uses ttv photography for her sole purposes of photo making, but she truely gives it an antique look and victorian feel.
Michelle Caplan is a mixed media artist who works with digital art. Even though most of her pieces are digital prints, they have that mixed media feeling. I think they are great!

I am not only an artist but also a teacher, so I spend a lot of time looking for cool artists. So I started this site to share my findings with others like me.
