Our Story



Hello! My name is Andrea
and I'm the founder of Maker Missya. 

Short Story:
Maker Missya started as a pandemic born hobby that has turned into my full time passion project. Each piece I create is unique.

Long Story:

I've always been a curious person and I love learning new things. I went to school for digital and graphic design and have always loved art and color theory.

When the pandemic hit I, like so many others, was laid off and had an abundance of time to try to find something new that would bring light into my life and give it more purpose. 
I always loved our garden and that particular year we made it bigger and better than ever. One of the projects I did was creating a wooden planter. That was what really lit the fire for me to create more pieces for my plants. I wanted to bring them indoors, so I started to focus on cement. This is where Maker Missya was born.

Learning to use cement as my medium was a complicated learning process. Many hours of failures and frustrations turned into the most magically therapeutic process for me.

In 2021 I decided that I wanted to bet on myself and go all in on this journey. What started as just a pandemic hobby to make things for my garden has now blossomed into my full time job. I'd like to say this somehow happened, but really it was with so much hard work, long sleepless nights, and the support of so many amazing people that I'm able to be living this dream.

If you've gotten this far, I appreciate you being here and reading this. I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I have enjoyed making them for you. Stop by a market and say hello or drop me a message on instagram!
~ Andrea
