I’m in the mood for phthalocyanine.

If Tiki were to adopt official colors, I’d nominate Phthalo blue and Phthalo green and include every luxurious and exotic shade in between.

Dawn is the undefeated champion of phthalo colors. She has spent her career crafting alluring works of art using the juicy watercolor and acrylic tints of copper phthalocyanine (CuPc). Take one look at her Moodxotica paintings, and you’ll fall deep into a pool of intense blues and greens surrounded by a tropical paradise. Or, wrap yourself in one of Sophista-tiki’s designed fabrics or aloha shirts, and you’ll feel immediately at peace in any mid-mod affair. With degrees in color theory and graphic design (pre-computers) as well as a masters in museum studies, Dawn is a hue maven.
