If you are searching for great art on a budget, this site is for you.
There are hundreds of thousands of affordable artworks currently waiting for you online. Where are they? How do you know which one to choose?
Luckily for you, it is part of my day job to look through these amazing artworks each and every day. Through this process, I have been introduced to some amazing and inspiring artists and designers. I am constantly in awe of and amazed by the creativity of others. I have decided to share with you some of the beauty I see online every day.
My goal is twofold; to increase exposure for the artist, and help buyers find the art they so desperately want and need.
WHO AM I?
I am a graphic designer and illustrator who lives in Melbourne, Australia. I don’t like writing about myself, but here goes. I am a design obsessed, coffee addicted, nature-loving, computer nerd who loves spending her spare time curled up on the couch with her partner, daughter and dog. A former naturopath and nutritionist, I decided to pursue my creative hobby full time in 2013. I studied graphic design, with the goal of working as an illustrator and product designer.
The Art Folk collection is curated based on my personal preferences and varied art tastes. The artists featured do not pay me to share their art. Some of the links I share are affiliate links. I use affiliate links to help cover the costs of running this blog. You are not charged any extra when you click an affiliate link. If you are interested in further information about affiliate links, you will find it here.
Keep up to date with The Art Folk
I have been sharing art and interior design inspiration on my Pinterest account since 2011, Audrey (my dog) has the habit of hacking my account and sharing pics of French Bulldogs (plus the odd selfie); it’s quite an experience. I recently set up The Art Folk on Instagram, plus Facebook and Twitter.

WHY DO ARTISTS NEED EXPOSURE?
Most online art marketplaces have hundreds of thousands of artists competing for sales. Many of these artists find it tough to create a profitable business because of the vast amount of competition. Most sales occur when the artist manages to get to the first few pages of the online marketplace. There are many examples of beautiful art that never make it to these first few pages. Some of the best art I have seen has been tucked away at the far reaches of these online marketplaces. People looking for art cannot be expected to search through hundreds of pages of art before they find what they are looking for, research shows buyers stop searching much sooner than this. I hope I can help make it easier for everyone by giving some of the best emerging artists some much-needed exposure, and offering amazing affordable art choices to art buyers.
DO WE TAKE ART AND DESIGN SUBMISSIONS?
We aren’t taking art submissions. If you want to increase your chances of being featured on The Art Folk the best way to get discovered is by interacting with the following accounts on Society6 or Redbubble as this is where we currently find the majority of our artists, I can also be contacted via my website.
