Peacock & Fig is Dana Batho, a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces who turned back to design after a training accident ended her career as an intelligence officer. She has exhibited her art in Japan, New Zealand, and Canada, and turned her design skills to cross stitch as Peacock & Fig in 2015.
Cross stitch is incredibly therapeutic, which has aided in her transition to a new life. She loves helping others find the joy of this craft with dozens of tutorials on her website and YouTube channel. She adores combining cheeky phrases with vintage-inspired designs and loves featuring colour in her designs.
