The “Self Taught Artists Treasury ” is a team of Artists that are exclusively “self taught” in one or more areas of thier artwork.
This wonderful group of artists have taught themselves the skills and techniques to create the amazing artwork you will see listed in our treasuries.
Many times Self Taught Artists are “overlooked” because they have not attended universities, or hold degrees in Art.
There are many self taught artists who by far surpass those artists who have studied at universities by leaps and bounds.
Our goal is to get these amazingly talented artists recognized and on thier way to building a successful Etsy shop.
