If you follow design blogs you might have heard of Amanda Talley. She is a New Orleans based artist that is widely loved by designers and clients alike. I have seen her work in homes featured in such publications as Elle Decor, House Beautiful and on such blogs as Elements of Style. I like her work for its color, sense of energy and that they are relatively affordable. Talley studied painting at Mary Baldwin College and received her MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design. You can find and purchase her work (commission too) on her website. Below are a few of my favorites.
