favorite shops series: Valentina Ramos

There is SO. MUCH. GOOD. STUFF. On Etsy! Sometimes I'm just overwhelmed by the talent, quality, beauty. I am compelled to buy it all (I have a shopping problem) but I'm also not a millionaire and can't afford it ALL (though I am extremely good at justifying my PayPal balance as my "flex account"), so I opt for featuring it here in hopes that I can help others discover the magical goodies offered by these artisans!

Last month I featured a bunch of Los Angeles natives and their awesome-sauce wares; if there are any featured shops hailing from my home town, I will give 'em a "holla" but otherwise I'm not discriminating based on geography!

Without further ado, I want to recognize a shop whose lovely artwork I've been coveting: Valentina Ramos.

You may have already heard of Valentina: her work is featured on DENY Designs as art for your home: duvet covers, shower curtains, jewelry boxes, and the like.  She also blogs and sells her lovely art in a variety of different reincarnations in the online marketplace (see links below).

Valentina is also celebrating leap year today by offering her customers 29% off on Etsy!  Use coupon code "29FEB" to get this great discount!

Valentina's work is a delicious culmination of black pen ink drawings plus pops of bright color with a South American influence (Valentina is Venezuelan!).  Her intricately-detailed work is driven by "the idea of the creation of a unified whole through the use of minute details. The use of pop colors, lines and circles that swirl & undulate result in playful artwork made with passion." (In Valentina's own words!)

Here is just a sample of the gorgeous art that Valentina has to offer; remember to stop by her Etsy shop and take advantage of her leap day deal!
