Viewer's Choice - Etsy Shops

Welcome to the fourth edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. Nearly 150 artists have answered a list of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented as a series of online and print projects. Links to the first three projects (Secret Sunday, The Book Guild, and StudioScapes) can be found on the sidebar of my blog.

Viewer's Choice is the fourth installment. All artists participating in The Pulse were asked to name their favorite from a number of categories. Today's top favorites: Etsy shops. Drum roll please...

Top 6 (in random order)

Little Black Kitty Art - Art and design by Debra Cooper. 'Love her choice of colors and pattern.'

Alicia Bock - Fine art photography from Paris to the Seaside.

Julie Whitmore Pottery - Pottery in the French Faience tradition. 'Her pottery is handbuilt and painted and each piece comes with its own story...reminiscent of Beatrix Potter.'

Vintage Supply Co. - Unique and essential items for the Mixed Media Artist from Jeanette Janson. 'Cool found objects and supplies.'

Cathy Cullis -  Mixed Media Art. 'Her work is eclectic, beautiful, and haunting.' 'Hopping back into soft focus, neutral fabric tones with a touch of retro, Cathy Cullis’s droolworthy dolls.'

Red Velvet Elements - Judy Wilkenfeld. 'An abundance of wonderful vintage, rare, unique objects.' 'I do love Red Velvet, because of the variety of charms and cool trinkets’ and 'for those must have, special bits of interest.' The most popular among those surveyed, Judy's shop is on hiatus as she is currently concentrating on her family's genealogy. Visit her shop to sign up for notification of her return.
