The idea of collecting art can be a daunting one and when it comes to finding the perfect pieces to fill your walls it can feel like there are only two directions you can go in, mass produced cookie-cutter art or the intimidating, confusing and often expensive option of buying directly from a gallery.

The internet has democratized the process quite a bit, but can be hard to sift through what's available. Here are ten of my go to resources for good, affordable art. Feel free to add your own suggestions to the comments below.
