Welcome! My name is Perla Bodden. I am a Los Angeles based Surface/Textile Designer. I enjoy working with various media to create unique and fun designs. I am an avid gardener and take inspiration from nature. I am open to roles within the textile/surface design industry and also look forward to collaborating in various creative projects.

Additional designs can be reviewed on my Pinterest account.
