K’era Morgan is a Los Angeles based mixed media artist and the creative power behind the art and textile brand K-Apostrophe.
According to K-Apostrophe’s website, each piece of Morgan’s artwork is “is a non-linear story woven together of found fragments from the world around her.” Her vibrant collaged paintings utilize everything from paper taken from magazines and books to paper painted by hand.
Beyond her gorgeous paintings, K-Apostrophe sells beautiful textiles including pillows and tapestries: “K’era collaborates with one of the few remaining American mills to transform her multi-media pieces into colorful woven throw blankets, pillows and tapestries made of 100% hand-dyed cotton for home interiors.”
