Thank you for supporting independent Black artists & entrepreneurs.



Hi!  I'm Naomi.  I'm a multi-disciplinary artist, educator, activist, facilitator and one who envisions a better world for all of us.   I believe in the sacredness and divinity of art and artistic expression... our creativity is what makes us human. Our humanity will heal us.

I originally started making these as one-offs for myself to spread messages of empowerment and badassery to audiences when I perform music or speak.   People have since asked me to make them so here they are!

These shirts are inspired by many, designed by me and printed on the unceded and occupied traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples, colonially referred to as Vancouver, B.C., Canada.  I designed these for people of the African diaspora, Indigenous people, People of Colour  AND people who love us. 

Please keep in touch as we develop!  Sign up for our mailing list to receive discount codes and information on new products.
