One of my newly discovered websites for purchasing non-mass produced art is Minted, an online marketplace where design savvy buyers can connect with independent artists and purchase their prints at a reasonable price. It's a win-win for Minted whose followers lend a hand in selecting the featured artists and the artist themselves whose designs are sold as prints, stationary, and home decor. My close friend Kelly Johnston of Kelly Johnston Art recently submitted three of her paintings in the Minted and West Elm Art Challenge. I for one have been a HUGE fan of Kelly's since we met nearly nine years ago and am keeping my fingers crossed she makes it as a finalist. Please join me in casting a vote for Kelly and be sure to follow her work thru Instagram. Go Kelly!!!
