It brings me great pleasure to introduce the FolkArtwork Collective — a fantastic group of self-taught and emerging artists from across the globe. Jackie Bradshaw, Esteban Whiteside, Sarah Lee, Noel Hatfield, and Peppermint House are the first artists to bring original artwork directly to the FolkArtwork web store on both FolkArtwork.art/shop and directly on Instagram.
After four years of running this account, sharing daily art by great outsider and self-taught artists who are no longer with us, I am thrilled to share this space with current artists to assist in their artistic journey and bring their artwork to the masses and maybe to a home near you.
Meet the artists, check out their artwork and bookmark this page for new work added weekly.
> JACKIE BRADSHAW is a neurodivergent, endometriosis warrior folk/outsider artist who specialize in watercolor hailing from Kitchener Ontario Canada.
> ESTEBAN WHITESIDE is a self-taught painter whose work is based on the intersectionality of street art and politics. A native of Asheville, North Carolina, he began painting as an act of love.
> SARAH LEE is a self-taught Irish artist and illustrator working in London — full-time as a nurse and at a charity that runs workshops for people with mental health conditions.
> NOEL HATIFLED s a self-taught artist from Winterest, Iowa working in oil paint in several styles, including Abstract, Expressionist, and Impasto with knife and brush.

I am excited to see FolkArtwork evolve and grow. It will continue to share daily outsider artwork by some of the greatest artists ever, pictures from travels across the country, visiting unknown and hidden art environments, and now offering original artwork for sale.
