About the instructor
I started my creative career at OCAD in Toronto, where I discovered my passion for fabric design and silkscreening. These united my love of fashion, sewing, drawing, creating and colour. At 24, I became an indie fashion entrepreneur with my business Peach Berserk. My wildly popular boutique was open 19 years, leading Fodor's travel guide to say I was ‘the undisputed monarch of Queen St. West." Now, from my Toronto studio, I continue to diversify my business in creative ways. I teach screenprinting and design in workshops as a teaching partner at TDSB, in my studio, as well as colleges and various organizations all over Ontario and beyond. My DIY book/DVD, "Silkscreen NOW", sells internationally and I am working on my latest/updated version. I also guest lecture widely on creativity and entrepreneurship, and am a board member of the Ontario Arts Education Association. My charity work includes the Dare to Wear Love fashion initiative for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and teaching Screen printing and entrepreneurship with United World Schools in Northern Cambodia.
