Favorite new artist: Erin Gregory

8 February 2016

My birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and though I have a full wish list, one item has moved to the very top — and I’d be thrilled if it was all I received! That item? A painting from my new favorite artist, Erin Gregory.

After much debate, I settled on “Birthday Party II,” above, but it was a tough call between it and my second favorite, “Efflorescence 8,” below.

And here’s a look at my painting of choice in a gorgeous room (that wallpaper!):

I can’t believe how well it fits with our house’s colors. If I’m lucky enough to land this beauty, I’m planning to hang it above our fireplace. For a long time I wanted Michelle Armas’ famous canvas for that spot, and while I still love it, I think Erin’s flowers make me even happier (and are less expensive, to boot!).

Here are a few of my other favorites from her:

Finally, I have to give credit where credit is due – I discovered Erin via Morgan Trinker’s home tour on A Beautiful Mess. Here’s an Erin painting in Morgan’s gorgeous home!

The full tour is worth a look – super inspiring!

P.S. More of my favorite artists.

    YES!!!! I love love LOVE Erin Gregory’s work! This was my #1 wish for Christmas 2 years ago. I ended up getting two square pieces that go really well together instead of one big piece and I still smile every time I see them. (I also have a lot more people recognizing her art since she’s started to become really popular through her One King’s Lane prints). Hope you get your beautiful piece!!

    Oh I just LOVE this post! I love discovering new artists, and I hadn’t seen any of Erin Gregory’s work. Thank you for sharing :)

  3. I love her paintings! They are so full of life and so beautifully bright and happy!

    Oh my gosh. These are stunning. Morning sunshine 3 has just gone right to the top of my wish list!! We have a Victorian house and the bottom half of the hallway walls are painted in a orangey colour called Charlotte’s Locks. It is a perfect match. I wonder if she ships to the UK ….

    Thanks for introducing me! I love all of them! And may have to add them to my wish list :)

  6. Knowing that you love Erin Gregory + Michelle Armas, I think you’d particularly love the artists represented by Gregg Irby if you haven’t already found your way there (http://greggirbygallery.com/) Also, I love the favorite piece you selected – and now that I’ve finally seen your beautiful home in person, I can perfectly envision it there! June is so lucky to grow up in such a bright, cheerful home!

  7. Those are some beautiful paintings! I’m off to see more of her work now!

    This is so wild. I’ve been enjoying/following Erin’s work since about 10 years ago when her portrait and street scenes were showing up in galleries in Alabama and Georgia. I had no idea she had moved into florals. So talented and so exciting!
