Etsy Find Vol. I: Artist Michelle Morin

Design InspirationSarice GutmanComment

Etsy.com is an amazing resource.  I shop on Etsy quite often for home decor, art and gifts! I am going to start a new series on the blog to highlight some of the great finds I have found on Etsy in the past, as well as new Etsy finds I discover.

Etsy is a fabulous place to purchase art. Whether it be prints or original pieces, there is a large inventory of art to choose from.  Today I am going to feature an artist I discovered last year: Michelle Morin.  Her Etsy shop is called United Thread.  She paints mostly nature using watercolor and gouache on paper and canvas.  You can learn more about her background on her website.  

Michelle's work has a lot of depth and layer to it. I find that I can look at a piece multiple times and see something different every time!  Her work also has so much color and life and any of her pieces would make a wonderful addition to any interior.  Now for some eye candy!

This piece is called Summers End.  I love how vibrant it is!

Bird Sanctuary at Night- this one would make quite an impact with its bold color.

I also love this one titled Hummingbird and Joshua Tree.

Last year I purchased several of Michelle's pieces for my own home.  I love the detail in each one.

One of Michelle's most recent works, Hummingbirds, was listed for purchase a couple weeks ago.  As soon as I saw it, I knew it would make the most perfect Mother's Day gift for my Mom! And I was right- she loved it!  Just look at all the vibrant color. If you squint,  you can almost see a flock of beautiful hummingbirds flying in front of you.

Michelle also has a second Etsy shop called MichelleMorinArt which features mainly landscapes.  These two are my favorite!

Michelle's talent is undeniable. I am so glad I came across her artwork on Etsy! Her art pieces will no doubt find their way into some of my client designs.  As for my own home, I have my eye on this one next!
