New posts have been a struggle these past two weeks, but I’m happy to get back on track with this one. The Etsy Artist of the Month for March 2012 is Julia Stiles. I know nothing more about Julia than what is shows in her Etsy profile.

All of the examples below are still shown as for sale on her Etsy page, and each image will link through. There are also many other prints in her store beyond the original artwork below.
Here’s my personal favorite:

And lastly, a great example of the artist’s work in oil.
