Tula Pink is an American textile designer with a dark sense of humor buried in a sea of print and pattern. She plays with images the way poets play with words, turning innocuous traditional designs into mischievous little critters. Whether it's a head of hair teased into a pirate ship or a damask molded into a frog, Ms. Pink can wrangle any shape into her own candy colored fantasy of creature delights.
Tula Pink lives on a farm in the middle of nowhere. She can't even find it on a map so she rarely leaves for fear of being lost. She spends her days drawing, sewing and battling nature as it tries to break through every sliver of an opening in her old farm house. From here she has produced over 200 fabric designs that have sold all over the world.
