Meet The Maker

WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
The Mills family, Augusta Ga. We make things as we need things.

DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
Many of the things we make in our family start with a need and a desire to create. We learn about the craft, whether leather working or children’s entertainment, and after procuring our supplies and tools, we get to work!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Our life encounters are where we draw most of our inspiration. Sometimes we read about a fun project in a book or see someone bringing a forgotten art back to life, and we can’t help but join in on the fun! We are a family full of curiosity and love learning a new skill, and now with kids who are more of the same, there seems to be a very long list of experiments and projects always looming!

FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I grew up in a very musical family. I’ve been singing and playing instruments since I was 5! Also, without a beard, I look like I’m 12.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
My first creative entrepreneurial endeavor that i recall was taking apart pens and mechanical pencils and reconnecting them into innovative new pieces and selling them to my fellow 5th graders 🙂

WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
Our Olde Town community, delightful eats, and arts & culture festivals

WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS? Always curious, always learning, and always looking with new eyes.
