My name is Beth.
I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil, and sewing up goodies since I was a kid. I studied Fine Art at NSCAD where I practiced a wide range of skills, from screen printing, ceramics, and photography. Poison Pear got its start in 2010, when the urge to create something new in Halifax, Nova Scotia (where I live) grew too strong to ignore. So I set up a rudimentary studio in my spare bedroom and got to work! Everything you see in my shop has been drawn, printed, and sewn (unless otherwise stated) by me.
Along with sewing and screen printing, I also enjoy knitting, painting, growing vegetables, biking to work, yoga, and crosswords in my spare time.
