We tell ourselves stories constantly yet this process is largely unconscious. These stories
are reflected in how we live our lives. We constantly pull feedback from the world
around us to either validate or inform existing narratives or to create new personal
narratives that manifest into reality. Although personal, my work is a reflection of this
collective unconscious process and is heavily informed by the natural world, which I
have found to be a profound reflector of the human experience. Guided by intuition and
a process that is largely spontaneous yet investigative, I mine my own thoughts,
experiences and bodily sensations to inform the abstract compositions and color palette
of my paintings. Each mixed-media piece is a non-linear drama made of gestural strokes,
marks and layers of color resulting in a visual representation of ephemeral sentiments,
emotions and experiences. Every ripple, mark or the choice to use a variety of materials
replicates life which is rarely black and white or uniform or void of texture.


K’era is a Los Angeles-based mixed media artist who continues to explore the art of
abstraction in the form of collage and painting, oftentimes bringing the two together to
create her delicately layered and dynamic pieces. She graduated from The School of the
Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in textile design, although she spent a great deal of
her early professional career in public relations until returning to her artistic calling in
2016. Her artwork has been featured in a variety of group exhibitions within the U.S and
can be found in private residences of collectors across the globe. When in the act of
creating, time stands still for K’era. There is no past, there is no future but just the

In addition to her studio art practice, K’era collaborates with a weaving collective in
Oaxaca, Mexico and one of the few remaining American mills in the US to transform
her multi-media pieces into colorful woven decorative accessories for home interiors.
Cozy, casual and comfortable, the woven home goods are an extension of K’era’s affinity
for functional, decorative art made for everyday use and enjoyment. Her line,
k-apostrophe, launched in 2017 and can be found in niche boutiques across the U.S. and
in Europe. The brand as well as K’era has received various accolades and media
attention including being named to and featured on the cover of Dwell Magazine’s
annual emerging global designer issue in 2021.
