Places and moments can be very special. There’s a sense of awe. Something that pulls you away from your mundane routine and gives you peace of mind. More importantly, this is true of our relationships with people too. To know that we’re loved, supported, and have a place in this world. We have a lot to be grateful for.

Who is special to you? Why are you happy to know them? What have you done to express that appreciation? It’s never too late to let them know.

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 thousands 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.
