Need something fresh for your walls? Please allow me to suggest the work of four local artists.

400 Moons//Emily Marlow

East Nashvillian Emily Marlow might be best known for the terrariums she hawks at local artisan fairs, but her mantra prints are just as fantastic. Each mantra stems from a period of time where the words were necessary to say to myself each day, says Marlow. I decided that seeing them was just as important, so I rummaged through many an old bookstore to find the perfect vintage papers to print the bold graphics on. Visit her here.

Emily Leonard


Painter Emily Leonard specializes in super gorgeous landscapes, but her Leavetaking print of an owl looks just as lovely when framed and matted. It occurs to me from time to time that one of the best reasons to live is to experience the look of the sun coming through a window, says Leonard. Visit her here.

Rebekka Seale

Another East Nashville-based artist, Rebekka Seale specializes in painting your house. Not that kind of house painting though. Her custom house portraits, priced at $150 each, have her booked for the foreseeable future. In case you can't get your crib on her list, there's lots of goodness in her etsy shop, too. Visit her here.

Oh My Deer//Chelsea Petaja

Chelsea Petaja has made a living with her handwriting. That's seriously cool. She not only sells greeting cards and prints featuring quotables in her etsy shop, but she provides custom designs for blogs. Visit her here.
