Meet the Founding Artists of Maike Makers

We are a team that inspire one another and want to share that inspiration with other artists, makers, and art collectors by providing a supportive environment for others. We provide a fair and safe place for known and emerging artists to learn, teach, or share their artwork experience in a casual and laid back artist club-type environment

Who’s got your back? We do! We understand what it’s like to be in the creative wilds. We've been there, and we want to make sure we're here to help you!  That’s what we do, and why we're here.
