5 Favorite Garden Artists Featured in My Own House

Favorite Garden Artists

I love art. And I like to buy it directly from the people who create it. I have a collection that I rotate through my house and I’m always looking for my new favorite artist. As you might have guessed, I’m especially attracted to vegetable garden and nature based art.  and always seek out new artists who dabble in this subject that’s close to my heart.

In case you’re looking for a gift for a fellow gardener, or something else to put on your own list, I thought I’d share five favorites that are part of my own collection.

1: red cruiser

My absolute favorite vegetable garden artist is Heidi Sweigert of red cruiser. I discovered her on Esty while I was browsing around and I love her clean and crisp style. And, she’s a fellow Midwesterner from Minneapolis. I have these two prints hanging in my dining room right now.

You can find all of her work in her Etsy shop here.

2: Victory Garden of Tomorrow

Joe Wirtheim’s small eco-conscious company, Victory Garden of Tomorrow, creates prints inspired by the victory garden messages from mid-century America. Several of his prints have made appearances on my living room walls.

3: Skinny laMinx

Etsy has been good to me because I also discovered Heather Moore and Skinny laMinx there. I have this tea towel framed and hanging in my dining room. I love pretty much everything she produces and have been trying to figure out how to get to South Africa so I can visit her store. 🙂

I also would love this print as wallpaper in my house some day.

She has an Etsy shop and a website.

4: Global Mamas

Exactly two years ago I was in Ghana volunteering for Global Mamas, a fair trade organization, for two months. Their legion of mostly women artists hand dye and batik each and every yard of their fabric – often outdoors over wood fires. It was an amazing and moving experience to see fair trade in action. I also happen to love their colorful and bold designs. I have several pieces of Global Mamas clothing and accessories in my home, including this apron and potholder.

  1. Linthound

If you’ve ever taken one of my live classes around Madison you may have seen me in this t-shirt. It’s soft, comfortable, nicely fitting and made in the U.S. I sell these at my booth at the Garden Expo and they are always a big hit.
