Looking for holiday gift ideas? Here's a list of children's book illustrators on Etsy

(Last updated: December 10, 2013)

I have an Etsy shop but haven't had anything posted for sale in ages (I might start selling prints and some handmade oddities in 2014, though). While doing some holiday shopping on Etsy recently, I became curious about other children's book illustrators who had shops.

I've posted a list below, but I know I'm missing many names. If YOU know of a children's book illustrator with an Etsy shop, please do post the URL of their Etsy shop in the comments section, thanks!

Sheralyn Barnes: original oil paintings, giclee prints

Kate Barsotti: pencil & sheep needle felting

Sophie Blackall: mainly prints

Calef Brown: drawings, paintings, originals from children's book illustrations.

Susan Taylor Brown: cards, prints, original art.

Great list, Debbie!

Stephanie Graegin has an Etsy shop. I've purchased two prints and a set of Christmas cards from her and I am delighted with them.

Thanks for adding my shop!

I sell prints of my artwork as well as custom illustrations. My focus is in fantasy, ethereal, animal, and victorian themed art :-)

Debbie, I'm so glad you posted this link on Facebook. I think Etsy is a fabulous place for children's book illustrators to market your illustrations. Etsy has been a good outlet for my photography and pillow designs as well, and it has a great support base.

All my best to you, friend!
