Hadiya Williams – emerging artist and owner of Black Pepper Paperie Co., – a Washington, DC-based mix-media art + design studio and lifestyle brand that focuses on creating globally inspired, one-of-a-kind handcrafted pieces to include wearable ceramic art, home decor, paper goods, and apparel. These ancestral modern pieces are rooted in memory and cultural influences from across the African diaspora, and I am sure they’d be of interest to your readers!
Additionally, Hadiya Williams’s graphic design work received national attention as she recently partnered with Best Buy for their Black History Month campaign “Write the Next Chapter.” It ran for the month of February.
In addition to her mixed media and graphic design work, Hadiya has done work with non-profit organizations in the Greater Washington, DC area serving families in marginalized communities throughout the city for the past 15 years. In her free time, she has also functioned as an art director & designer for special events, weddings, and small gatherings. Her ultimate goal is to create work that transforms spaces and helps people celebrate life’s most important moments. Her style is bold and all her own.
