Adventure Artists You Should Follow on Instagram



I've always wished that I had at least some sort of artistic ability. Growing up, art class was the worst; I was always on the hunt for a masterpiece, but before long it became very apparent that I hadn't a single artistic bone in my body. By my teens I came to the conclusion that art was just not in the cards, and I have since gladly left the sketching, painting, and making to others who actually have talent. 

As Instagram continues to blow up and take the world by storm with incredible images, stories and personalities, I have fallen in love with following the adventure artists out there, and I am constantly impressed by both their explorations and their creations while outside. To be able to capture the wonder and beauty of the great outdoors is such a gift, and while I may not be able to partake, it doesn't mean I can't thoroughly enjoy and draw inspiration from the gorgeous work of others!

Over time, I have accumulated a list of my favorite adventure artists, and given that it's the holiday season, I wanted to share these extremely gifted individuals with you! Ranging from well-known painters, masters of ceramics, and professional athletes with a knack for doodles to local welders and friends who don't leave home without their sketchbook, this list covers a lot of ground... 

So take a gander, follow along on their adventures, get inspired, and maybe even purchase a print, mug, or a pair of earrings for that special someone this holiday season!

In no particular order, here's my big list of adventure artists you should follow on Instagram...
