Springtime Handmade Market Vendor Profile: Dear Pony
In 2007, Tracy Fillion began a self-guided study in silk-screening and sewing. After developing her pattern drafting and technical skills at Kootenay School of the Arts, she launched her Dear Pony clothing line in 2008.
My work is inspired by the subtleties found in nature, salvaged objects and contemporary themes, I love to experiment with textural contrasts in surface design, natural dyeing, quilting and screen-printing. My intent is to create work that is highly functional, refreshing and thoughtful.
I currently maintain a full-time studio practice at home in Nelson, BC. Dear Pony can be found online (dearpony.com) and in galleries and boutiques across North America.
