Melissa (Missie) Gillette
Sunshine and Cedar Designs
Melissa (Missie) Gillette is one of our most prolific makers! Her studio space is brimming with handcrafted earrings, signs, gnomes, original paintings and more! She teaches classes of all kinds here at The Cheshire Union as well as for homeschoolers. When she isn't creating or teaching, Missie loves camping in the Adirondacks and attending concerts (especially the Jonas Brothers)!
"My art is my way of expressing my joy as I work to spread my pieces and a little bit of love, light, and happiness to the world around me. All of my pieces can be hand drawn, assembled or painted, laser cut or etched, modified through a program or printed as I see it."
