    So I think I may be late to the party! Having purchased a lot of works by some of the well known Male Artists in this Genre, I have a house full of art by SHAG's, Derek Yaniger, Doug Horne and others. I first noticed Dawn's work in an Issue of ATOMIC RANCH magazine; but never quite got around to digging deeper until recently. I am so glad I did. Within moments of framing & hanging this fabulous print, I knew it wouldn't be the last. The colors are vibrant, the imagery is somewhat other-worldly, yet immediately recognizable by any fan of TIKI Art. So I ordered a second print by Dawn; and well........ I like it even more than the first & am willing to bet I will be ordering another one soon! Dawn's work is fabulous & would be fabulous if she charged 5times as much. :)

    Lovely print arrived safely in a poster tube. The handdrawn address label was a very cute touch! Second purchase from this shop and happy with the quality!
    Thank you!

    I LOVE this print. The colors are absolutely stunning and the paper is high quality. It’s perfect for my home and I really enjoyed the extra detail on the packaging.

    Amazing shirts! I’ve admired Dawn’s art for years and have seen the aloha shirts on her Instagram. Finally pulled the trigger myself and I’m so glad I did. Hands down these are the best, most unique, Aloha shirts I own. No worries about running into someone at the tiki bar (or big event) wearing the exact same shirt. Dawn’s art is beautiful, so many amazing designs I couldn’t narrow it down to just one! These are expertly sewn and well constructed! I’m blown away by the quality!

    Print arrived all banged up (thank you postal service) even thou it was packaged so well and with care in a sturdy hard tube. I guess i just had some bad luck... However Sophista tiki was kind enough so send me a new one and provided excellent customer service while doing so.
    The print itself is gorgerous, the colours are far more vibrant then it shows in the pictures!

1962 grade school meets travel agency reception area= Sophista-tiki

I am Dawn Frasier, Tiki Artist. I live and work from my mid century modern home in West Seattle. Having a home based studio that produces marketable works is a dream come true. I couldn't imagine working any where else. I find that the work builds on itself. The designs of primitive South Pacific traditional art forms inspire me to no end, from original works to fabric design. The product lines seem to evolve naturally.
For many years I have worked exclusively on my paintings which have been received with solo shows in high profile galleries and magazine covers. Becoming an established figure in the subculture of tiki art has fed my confidence to pursue my ideas beyond just paintings. A few yrs ago I started designing vintage inspired Hawaiian print fabrics . Years of scouring fabric shops to make my own clothes always left me feeling unsatisfied with the choices available. The fabrics led to Sophista-tiki togs. Sophista-tiki Togs led to other people buying yardage to make their own retro inspired clothing.
This year I embark on home decor. Countless hours of research have shown me the need for some very basic items that don't seem to exist for the tiki modern enthusiast. Stay tuned for the launching of RUGXOTICA, Hand Tufted Retro Rugs. RUXOTICA rugs, all hand made right here in my home studio . Old school materials and techniques combined with my original designs with matching Sophista-tiki fabrics available here on Etsy as Pillow covers.,
