MAJO was created by two design-obsessed mamas who love making art with their children. Alex Aranda lives in the Big Apple, New York City and has two boys of her own, Cy and Rainer. She is also the founder of Rainershine art kits and a practicing fine artist.

Ligaya Tichy lives in the city by the bay, San Francisco and is ever-inspired by her daughter, Skye. She is the founder of Wild Child, an arts-based preschool and event space in Oakland, California.

MAJO started in the midst of the pandemic, so Alex and Ligaya didn’t meet until after working together for eight months! While it’s not likely they’ll ever live in the same city, they will continue to send Monty collages to each other on the regular.
