MEET THE ARTIST
Kandy Pohrer grew up in the suburbs of St. Louis and was raised in a small business family. She began crafting at a young age due to the influence of her mom, Cindy, who encouraged creativity and loved DIY projects herself. While only a senior in high school, Kandy started making hemp jewelry, which became popular among her friends and classmates. This success led her to participate in craft shows around the St. Louis area. She quickly realized her passion for art and business and enrolled in the University of Evansville (IN) Schroeder Family School of Business. She graduated in 2011, moved back to St. Louis, and continued making art and vending at local events.
2017 marks the 9th year of Kandy's journey in the handmade business world. Over the years she has mastered many new crafts and implemented them into her product mix. She has participated in over 100 arts and craft events in Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana... and she has loved every minute of it.
