  1. Katherine’s first job was as a physical therapist, and she uses her anatomy knowledge in her profession. She’s noted for depicting how people organically move through their surroundings, and since she’s based in Traverse City, the North has influenced many of her paintings’ settings and color schemes. FLOW, For Love of Water, receives 5% of Katherine’s income.
  2. Haley Jo Hildebrand, the woman behind Sweet Fern, makes a statement with her earrings. “That Woman from Michigan,” a recent collection, includes contemporary pieces celebrating strong Michigan women including Gretchen Whitmer, Dana Nessel, Cora Reynolds Anderson, and Aimee Stephens.
  3. Laura Brown, who is based in Leelanau County, works with locally created clays found in the same soil she lives on, loves, and explores. Each piece of her wheel-thrown pottery is one-of-a-kind and manufactured in small batches. Her creations are not only utilitarian and practical for domestic usage, but they are also stunning.
