Female Design Council Spotlight: K’era Morgan

We continue to celebrate Women’s History Month together with the Female Design Council (FDC), where we highlight talented designers, artists, and creators who identify women and their incredible work. This week we introduce K’era Morgan, a Los Angeles-based mixed media artist and textile designer whose abstract artwork can be found on tapestries, blankets, pillows, prints and notebooks, as well as original collage paintings. After graduating with a BFA in textile design from the School of Art Institute in Chicago, K’era embarked on a long career in public relations before returning to her artistic roots. She has since focused on handmade art, working intuitively to create each piece as she withdraws from her surroundings to ultimately tell a story. In the manufacture of textiles, K’era works with one of the last American mills to turn their colorful, graphic patterns into eye-catching textiles made of 100% hand-dyed cotton. Her textile goods and original artwork have landed in independent boutiques, private homes and art collections around the world and can be purchased through her website k-apostrophe.com.
