About Us

Michael Vain

Reincarnations was created by Michael Vain as a vehicle for his creative talents, and as a way to earn extra income while raising two daughters on his own. Originally conceived as a means to give old, discarded furniture a new life, Reincarnations has shown works of painted furniture in prestigious galleries across the country, and has exhibited at juried contemporary craft exhibitions. Today, Michael continues to produce some of the most unique painted furniture and contemporary craft items found anywhere.
