Our Mission

Reincarnations Hand Painted Furniture & Other Artistic Creations was created with the goal of creating fun, whimsical art. The artists would rescue damaged or abandoned furniture and give it a new life as a work of hand painted furniture, bringing a splash of color and a sense of happiness to its new home. Today, our mission remains unchanged as we create new works from both new and vintage furniture, as well as custom decor works and hand painted murals. If you would like to have our studio create a unique piece for you, visit our Contact Page.

About Reincarnations Hand Painted Furniture

The Artists

Michael Vain

Reincarnations was created by Michael Vain and his partner 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 hand 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 hand painted furniture and contemporary craft items found anywhere.

Kali Cornelis

Kali, along with Michael, was one of the founding artists of Reincarnations. Her whimsical style helped establish Reincarnations as a source of unique hand painted furniture. She left her partnership with Michael in 2004, and continued to create artwork until she passed away in 2017. Today, her work is still in use by our clients, and serve as a testiment to her whimsical nature, and desire to spread creativity and happiness into the world.
