Dana Batho is a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces and 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.
When she’s not dreaming up new patterns, she loves playing with her adorable and ridiculously sweet service dog Coco, and enjoying the beauty of Victoria, British Columbia.
