Local Art: Stephanie Mason of KyLo & Co
What stemmed from celebrating a special occasion quickly turned into a business from the heart for Stephanie Mason.
Crafting pieces of art has been a lifelong interest, but in 2022 Stephanie officially launched her plaster focused artwork locally––known as KyLo & Co.––as a way to serve the community she has loved for many years. After deciding to create a DIY piece with her husband, she gained inspiration to create her first capsule collection of large canvas plaster paintings, crafted with simplistic elegance that enhances any room.
She proudly combines a visually minimalist approach with a trendy design nod to the mid-century modern style. Between her classic arches to her moving strokes, she tailors each piece of artwork to subtly give dimension. Whether you’re looking for a centerpiece for your home or a distinct painting to light up your nook, KyLo & Co. offers a variety of handcrafted plaster art online at thekyloandco.com.
In addition to her staple plaster pieces, KyLo & Co. at times releases a variety of abstract watercolor pieces on large canvas.
“Lighting is everything when it comes to displaying art in your home,” she notes.
The recent loss of her mother to cancer inspired her “Art for the Heart” initiative, where she collects water from a place of significance to you to be added to any plaster or water color painting you request as a client.
If you’ve ever wandered through the rustic hallways of Lakeland’s very own Scout & Tag, you may have come across Stephanie’s iconic swan pieces, available for purchase on site. You can also shop her latest pieces at Lakeland Downtown Farmers Curb Market every Saturday. Written on the back of each canvas is Jeremiah 29:11, as a representation of the thoughtful prayer she places over her work.
