About Micah

I’ve loved art and calligraphy since I was a child growing up in south Los Angeles. I learned calligraphy at 10 years old in the basement of the Los Angeles Mission, where my mother ran the learning center. My calligraphy teacher was a man named Ray, an openly gay Black man who was a former resident at the Mission. He taught me a lot about being authentically yourself and showing who you are through your art.

I am a proud graduate of Spelman College, an HBCU located in Atlanta, Georgia. Attending Spelman changed the way I looked at my culture and heritage. While there, I didn’t feel marginalized or less-than, and I wanted to carry that feeling with me always. I want to design decor that affirmed my Blackness and share the love I have for my people with you.

While I ultimately chose physics and engineering as a career, it was arts and crafts where I found true joy and fulfillment. I share the joy with my girls, Noah and Lailah, and my husband Nacho. In 2020, amid a pandemic, I returned to the idea of creating a business that brought my love for calligraphy, decor, and my culture.

I love decorating my home and can spend hours wandering around Home Goods or Hobby Lobby. While the home decor industry is saturated with cute products with cute sayings, not many speak to the experience and history of my people.  As an African American calligrapher, I am committed to creating elegant, high-quality home decor that reflects the singular vibrance, joy, and beauty of my culture and heritage.

I invite you to explore my one-of-a-kind lamps, pillows, kitchen items and much more. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line if something catches your eye. I will release new offerings in the coming months, and I’d love to hear from you.
