Mixed media artist MK Long delivers creativity by combining the colors in paint, the relief of sculpture, and the presentation of a canvas. Her focus is on texture, and her layering of such creates high and low relief pieces with a 3D effect so detailed that you must reach out and touch to fully appreciate. Having grown up in a large family in rural West Michigan, MK learned to be resourceful and has been creating things nearly her entire life. As an artist, she prefers using recycled items, such as packaging materials, spent flower cuttings, and other treasures. She builds her works by hand and brings them to life with acrylics and texture. MK is inspired by the mysterious shapes and colors of Gothic architecture, the symmetry of rose windows, and the changing form of deciduous trees. When asked what her goals are, MK says "My hope is to design pieces that catch your attention; that people truly enjoy - not just the first time they see it, but every time they walk by."
