K’era is a Los Angeles-based mixed media artist and textile designer.
Having previously launched a photographic derived textile company with a fellow designer, K’era desired to return to the art of making by hand without the aid of digital and hi-tech tools. Her mixed media work is heavily influenced by tribal/global textile surface design and mark making. She considers the act of ‘’piecing together’’ her collaged paintings that include found paper sourced from magazines, newspapers and books as well hand-painted paper much like the process of quilting together a story.
K’era graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in textile design.
