Art by Maddi
Hello, my name is Madison McKenzie! I was born, raised, and still reside in sunny St Augustine, Florida. I am a painter and a graphic design student at Flagler College. I enjoy painting on canvases with acrylic paint, and usually end up reflecting my love for traditional tattoo art, horror movies, and my hometown in my art pieces. I also create jewelry, shirts, stickers, more based off my hand painted or digital work. Check out my website www.artbymaddi904.com or my Instagram @artbymaddi.904 to shop or stay posted on my latest artwork!
My name is Heather Williams and I'm the owner/artist behind Mudd Slinger. I'm a Jacksonville native with a love for all things creative.

Check out my Instagram @mudd.slinger to see my work!
KATIE WHITE & BECCA BARROS
We’re Becca and Katie, two pharmacy girls who love everything fashion. We created tiedyeRx out of quarantine and turned a hobby into full-time hustle bringing you hand-dyed, one of a kind pieces—a prescription for your closet if you will.

My name is Maggie Borosky, I’m from Orlando, Florida, and my handmade fabric accessories & Kokedama small business is called FoSew.Co.

Check us out on Instagram and we can’t wait to meet you all on December 12th!
Whether it’s painting, beading, weaving, sewing or magazine collage Nicole is always down to
experiment with any form of art. Through the years upcycling became an important part of how she
creates. Using materials like old pieces of jewelry to create new jewelry, old t-shirts into decorative
pillow covers & bags, wine corks and old wood pieces into trivets and vision boards, even a previously
painted canvas & expired magazines can be turned into a new piece of wall art. You can find Nicole on Facebook as Nicole Samuels, on Instagram @8earthdancer8 or through email email@example.com
Hello! I’m Christina and I’m the owner of ADEN. While I’ve always had an undying love for candles, every time I lit one I would end up with headaches and nausea. After falling down a rabbit hole of research, thanks google, I came to understand just how toxic most household candles are. I set out to make non-toxic, eco-friendly, vegan candles that did not sacrifice quality. That’s when I launched ADEN, a company that values transparency. I offer luxurious, minimalist designed scented candles that bring comfort and relaxation to every home. You can find me at local markets and events.

Haiya, I am Cheyenne or Chey,
creator of Chey Dyes from a small town called DeBary that I’ve lived in my entire life. You'll find me almost smack dab in the middle or Daytona and Orlando.
Chey Dyes is size inclusive ranging from XS-4X+ because I know how it feels to never find your size or be able to find those affordable yet trendy clothes. For me, dyed tees were never just a trend and have always caught my eye stylistically.
Alongside of CheyDyes, after losing my job of 5+ years, I’m also going back to school and am currently enrolled at Valencia College for digital media. I started booking events because I was really missing out on social interactions and meeting new people every day - an experience I had while working at the theme parks. I’ve always loved strolling through pop-up events and being supportive of small businesses and now I take pride in also being a part of this wonderful community. Being a small business owner can be momentous at times but using the opportunities of owning a small business is what’s supporting me through school. A feeling that will never truly feel like more than just a dream forming into reality.
