Tula Pink graduated from Otis College of Art and Design, with degrees in both Graphic Design and Illustration. College was fun but left her broke so, naturally, she decided to get a job. After working briefly as a senior exhibit designer for two major Los Angeles Museums Tula realized her life had become a bit too quite 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 get without renting a boat and work her way back west until she found a place she liked.
Tula now resides in a small mid-western town where her closest neighbor is roughly four miles away. She has a cat that she never sees and a lawn that requires more attention than the cat.
Tula's main function in life is fabric design. She lives for it. Through all of the moving and mind changing one thing was constant; fabric and sewing. She designed her first fabric collection in her living room, after work and on weekends. A few years and several collections have passed since then.
Today she works with FreeSpirit Fabrics designing not just for quilting but for a whole lifestyle of DIY-ers with a passion for saying things like “Hey! look what I made” or “don’t sit on that, it’s still wet”. 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.
