Hey there!

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.

For the lastest news, sneak peaks, and exclusive deals, find me on Facebook!

Why We’re One of a Kind

Everything you see in my shop has been drawn, printed, drafted and sewn (unless otherwise stated) by me. This hands-on approach is part of what makes Poison Pear special - I don't rely on computers or special equipment to make my items, and ability to mix and match is pretty much endless.

Primary Materials

I love to work with super soft fabrics, and use as much of the fabric as possible so less ends up in the landfill. All inks are water-based and eco-friendly.

Shipping Policy

I ship through Canada Post.
