About The Artist

Michelle Ciarlo-Hayes is the award-winning artist, creator, and story-teller behind mkc photography.

Until the age of ten, Michelle was certain the secret passage into Narnia truly existed and if she just rifled through enough closets and cupboards, she would find it.

Fables, fairy tales, and legends have always enchanted Michelle, her favorites being those where feisty and daring heroines like Lucy and Alice run off to have wild adventures.

She graduated from the University of Oxford, where she would read in the same gardens that inspired C.S. Lewis and Lewis Carroll’s imaginations, and her whimsical, witty, & joyful {with just a hint of quirky} artwork is still influenced by this idea of magical worlds that mingle with our own.

She’s a former librarian (hence, all those salvaged books) and she creates every piece of artwork featured on her handmade wares.
