Cosmic Magpie

I'm Morgan (aka Magpie), the artist behind Cosmic Magpie Tie Dye in Humboldt Co., CA. I first dabbled in tie dye when in high school back in the late '80s. My lifelong passion for creative expression led me down a variety of paths, but came full circle back to tie dye in 2020, when I dove headfirst into dyeing full time! I work exclusively in ice dye methods, which create incredible color movement and blends that can't be achieved with liquid dye. The results of ice melting into dye powders and fabric is nothing short of magic! I particularly enjoy intricate folds and ties like mandala and geode designs. Creating spectacular wearable art to share with the world is incredibly satisfying. Life's too short for boring clothes!
