Featured Artist: Michelle

At Primitives by Kathy, we are proud to showcase original artwork from exceptionally talented artists. Throughout our catalogs and website, you’ll find everything from wall decor and wood carvings, to felt critters and hand-lettered designs, all featuring replications of unique, original designs from our artist partners.

Block signs are easy to hang or can free-stand alone.

For one such artist, Michelle, inspiration comes in the form of the Tennessee countryside and the various farm animals that inhabit it. With muses such as cows, sheep, and ducks, Michelle creates beautiful freehand masterpieces featuring the dynamic texture and depth you’ll notice on our products. This stunning dimension came about when after a long stretch of painting with oil on canvas, she developed an itch to explore something a little less conventional, thus landing on the unique process of applying acrylic paint directly onto burlap. The abrasive texture and high absorbency of the burlap may result in the destruction of many brushes and a high volume of paint, but the juxtaposition of this rough process with the sweet and delicate animal icons on the finished product only adds to its charm.
