In The Studio With Artist Mikenzi Jones of Kenzi Studio Co

Mikenzi Jones is the second artist featured in Pressed’s limited edition Black History Month collection. We’re celebrating with a series of spotlights featuring all three black female artists, each making contributions to their communities in unique ways.

Each Tuesday during the month, meet one of these artists in our In The Studio series as they invite us into their studios and share their perspective. 

Check out each limited edition label design on Pressed’s best-selling juices — all proceeds from the collection will go to support each artist’s work in making a meaningful impact in their communities….
