This maker’s creativity comes through in the products - from wall art, to trays, to shelves, and beyond.

I'm a Maker Because...
Nicole Band interview
What inspires you to keep making things?
"The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating - there’s this excitement and drive that comes with exploring different tools, materials, and styles! Simply doing something in a different way can often give you a new and fresh perspective."
What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?
"Be sure to define what success means to you. There can be outer pressures to succeed, but success truly looks different for everyone. Keep working towards the life you want! I think we all have something special to offer - figure out what that is about you and share it with the world."
"Keep working towards the life you want..." — Nicole Band
