Well, the world seems to have come to a screeching halt, but YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu are still here for us! 😀 As we’re trying to stay busy and keep ourselves entertained, I thought I’d pass along some of my favorite YouTube artists and makers that inspire me.
My favorite YouTubers fall into two main categories — artists and makers. The artists obviously create art. The maker category consists of people who build furniture, create non-art resin projects, turn things on lathes, etc. So that’s how I’ll break down this list. Just click on the pictures to go right to each YouTube channel. Let’s start with…
Favorite YouTube Artists
Jay Lee teaches some pretty simple art techniques that result in really beautiful artwork.
I don’t love everything that John Beckley does, but I’m often amazed at some of the techniques he comes up with. If you love abstract art, you’ll probably like this channel.
Kanella Ciraco does mostly Dutch pours with acrylic paints. They’re quick, easy, and entertaining.
My list of artists wouldn’t be complete without at least one watercolor artist. Makoccino shares some simple ideas and techniques for beginners.
Mely D. is the first acrylic pour artist I subscribed to, and is still one of my favorites.
Molly’s Artistry is another favorite liquid acrylic pour channel of mine.
I find Paul Startart so entertaining because he loves to try out new and random techniques. The final result may not always be my favorite, but the journey is always fun.
Rinske Douna does some of my favorite quick and simple acrylic pours.
My absolute favorite liquid acrylic artist is Sarah Mack. I could watch any and all of her Galaxy pours all day long. They’re mesmerizing and amazing.
Favorite YouTube Makers
These guys are amazing at furniture builds. I learn something new with each of their videos. Plus, they’re very entertaining.
Nick Zammeti is also very entertaining. He loves to experiment a lot with resin, sometimes using the most random items to create fun projects. He also loves to turn both wood and resin on his lathe. Not every project turns out, but it’s always incredibly fun to watch his creative mind at work.
I’ve already introduced you to DIY Huntress in a previous post, but she’s certainly one of my favorite YouTubers. She build amazing things in her 12 x 12 shed shop, and her videos are great.
I also introduced you to Pneumatic Addict in a previous post, and she also deserves a place on my list of favorite YouTubers. She also builds mostly furniture, and she breaks down the builds step-by-step in her videos.
So those are my favorites! Do you have any favorite YouTube artists, builders, makers you follow regularly? If so, pass them along so that we can stay entertained and inspired!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
