A little corner

I love this little corner of our sunroom. It has 2 of my absolute favourite pieces of art...

I got this awesome Star Wars original gocco print from Etsy, how cute are Yoda and R2D2? Etsy is an absolute goldmine for original art, I have gotten some lovely paintings and original screenprints there too, love it!

Another of my absolute favourite places to buy art is Gallery Artes, all the work there is by artists who work under the Studio Artes initiative, check out their website and gallery, they have the most awesome original paintings and prints for really affordable prices. The gallery itself also has a small studio where you can see the artists at work, it has a lovely relaxed yet productive atmosphere. This original lino cut print is by artist Matthew Calandra, I got to have a great chat with him the day I bought it, a really lovely man, great artist with no pretentions, I'm hoping to buy more of his work soon.
