WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
My name is Markita and I’m the Chief Bath Artisan of Butter Me Soft. I was born and raised in Portsmouth, Virginia and currently reside in Grovetown, Ga.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
All of my products are made fresh in small batches by hand with high quality ingredients that’s free of parabens and phthalate free fragrances, all while being vegan friendly & cruelty-free. I also use eco-friendly plant based glitters in my products that won’t impact our oceans and wildlife.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
When creating products I get inspired by colors and how they make me feel.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I LOVE watching fantasy movies that are full of magic, mystical creatures and supernatural phenomena. I’m a kid at heart so watching movies like that helps me escape from the world a little.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
I love the energy, the scenery, and all the small businesses that are Downtown Augusta. It gives me hope that one day I too will contribute to the beauty of the city with my very own boutique.
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
The products I make gives me a way to express my creativity and personality while turning it into a reality for myself and someone else.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Be original and be you. You are the best version of yourself because there isn’t another YOU.
