About Kylah’s Creative Crafts:

Loving what I do.

It is important to love what you do. Creating something new out of old is my passion, especially if it involves a paint brush. Painting is the one thing I know I can control. There is a new challenge with every piece, and that is exciting to me. Upcycling is the thing right now! Taking something aged and dusty, and giving it a new life is something beautiful in itself. I absolutely LOVE weathered wood. What has it been through? How old it is? What kind of story could you have? I give it a new life, a new meaning, and a new purpose. Let me create your ideas on something that will last a lifetime.

This is my passion. This is my life.

About Mike’s Artwork:

The works of artist-painter Michael Ross Matherly are collected throughout the world. Michael’s main sources of inspiration are from the vast beauty around us that God has created.

As a young boy, Michael showed outstanding talent. The achievements he holds are evidence of his love for and dedication to his art. With a multitude of interests, he works in acrylic, always striving to call forth a freshness in his works. He spends a great deal of time researching his subjects. That is obviously reflected in the details of his paintings.

He has done commissioned work for the National Wildlife Federation in Washington D.C. His work has been published on covers and inside several national and state magazines. He has won a total of six Indiana Game-bird Habitat Stamps and Indiana Trout-Salmon Stamp Competitions. He has designed several postage stamps for the United States Postal Service in Washington D.C., many of which are still available at your local post office. He was commissioned to create a series of twelve collector plates for the Franklin Mint, titled “The Majestic Cats Collection”, which were sold around the world. According to the Franklin Mint, he is one of three artists to ever have a plate series extended to twelve plates, and his series has been the most successful in the history of the Franklin Mint. He also designed a single collector plate, “Midnight Majesty”, in addition to the series, that was endorsed by the International Wildlife Coalition. He has designed several commissioned works for the Postal Commemorative Society. In addition to the above, Michael’s artwork is licensed by many different manufacturers and produced on dozens of different products sold worldwide such as print reproductions, greeting cards, mugs, coasters, trivets, T-shirts, jigsaw puzzles, tapestry afghan throws, woven pillows, calendars, mirrors, mirror coat racks, furniture, cross stitch, tote bags, decorative tins, wallpaper wall murals, kiln fired tile wall murals, woven men’s and women’s cardigans and pullovers, magnets, decals, serving trays, see-through auto window graphics, paint-by-number kits, gun safes and many new licenses are in the works.
