What happens when a piece of Mike Kraus' art scampers into the studio of Maureen Robbins? Magic! An artists' workshop is a dangerous place for a squirrel to wander in to. There's lots of paint, beads, gems, stones lurking in every nook and cranny. Some that bring out somber thoughts and others that dazzle the eye with its brightness. But, if everything goes right and momentum propels us correctly, unusual collaborations can lead to wonderful enchantments.

Maureen Robbins
From collector to artist, Maureen Robbins has always had a certain flair. She shared her artistic side with a love of interesting purses and jewelry during a long career in Marketing, along with a home filled with unusual artwork and collectibles from around the world. So it was no surprise that, in retirement, she would take her artistry in a new direction. A bejeweled old window, used as a message board in a B&B was her first inspiration for turning everyday items into bejeweled pieces of artwork …. planters, vases, windows, picture frames. From those early stages, her artwork has developed in multiple directions and her work has been shown in a Gallery in San Diego, CA, and has been featured for three years in the Spring Show of the Erie Art Museum. Today, you’ll find pieces in galleries and art shops across Upstate New York.

Mike Kraus was born on the industrial shoreline of Muskegon, Michigan. After earning his Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he attended Grand Valley State University for his graduate degree. From there, he gained varied experiences from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Hauenstein Center For Presidential Studies, Lollypop Farm Humane Society, and the Children's Memorial Foundation. And every place he worked, he had his sketchbook with him and found ways to be actively creative. In 2014, Kraus became a full-time artist by establishing Mike Kraus Art. Since then, he has sold hundreds of paintings that are displayed in nearly every state and dozens of countries. Currently, Kraus lives in Rochester, New York with his beautiful wife and goofy dog.

    The Raccoon #234 (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) 2.5" x 3.5" by Mike Kraus
  • Hannah Davie Feb 10, 2019

    I own quite a few of Mike’s Aceo Cards. I particularly love his Twilight Series which showcases trees. Each one is wonderful and unique. I wanted this Aceo as I have another one of bare trees in the snow which is beautiful. This was going to be a present for a friend but I decided to keep it and send her a different one. I am quite partial to trees in the snow and the beauty of the branches without leaves. The trees have a glow to them because of the kind of paint he uses on branches. When the light hits them they become very magical. I have them either framed or on easels all over my room.
    This shipped fast and was well packaged.
    I think Mark is a fantastic artist and an extremely nice man and I love supporting his store which is terrific.

    I fell in love with the colors and the tree design in this aceo. There is a lot of texture and detail and it has the wonderful glow I love in Mike’s work. Whenever the light hits his work it’s magical as the tree trunks always have a lovely shimmer. His work is very calming with it’s beautiful blues, greens and purples. They fill me with delight and joy.
    Mike’s shop is very special. He is such a nice seller as well.

    I love having the trees frame the water. It’s the first Aceo I have purchased from Mike that has the combination of trees and water. I find it very striking. It complimemts the other five cards I have in this particular series. It’s a lovely little piece of art.
    It shipped fast and well well packaged.
    Mike is such a talented artist and so nice to work with. I love his work. His store is full of his unique beautiful art.
