Meet Tula Pink – Fabric Designer
Tula Pink graduated from Otis College of Art and Design, with degrees in both Graphic Design and Illustration. After working briefly as a senior exhibit designer for two major L.A. Museums, Tula realized her life had become a bit too quiet and set out in search of something louder. She found the noise she was looking for in the booming L.A. music industry.
After 6 years of Metal, Hip Hop, skulls and chains her ears began to bleed so she left California in search of a new home. The plan was to move as far east as she could, without renting a boat and work her way back west until she found a place. Today, Tula lives and works in a converted early 19th century brick carriage house. What was once home to a plethora of animals now serves as a studio in which they are re-imagined and reinterpreted into colorful animal based fabrics. Tula’s passion in life is fabric design. Through all the moving and mind changing, one thing remained certain: her love for fabric and sewing. She designed her first fabric collection in her living room, dedicating time after work and on weekends. A few years and several wonderful collections later, Tula now designs not just for quilting but for a whole lifestyle of DIY-ers. Seeing her name on that selvage was the only thing that had been missing from her professional life. So here she sits, an exiled rock princess on a throne of bolts and bobbins just waiting for someone to come along so she can show them what she’s made of.
