I am the owner and operator of Peach Beast, my name is Eleanor Hazard (yes that is my real name).
'Lisa Frank for adults' is one way Peach Beast has been described. My honest and unapologetic designs are inspired by childhood nostalgia and punk ideologies I adopted as a teenager. The bright colors of the 90s and Y2K era are paired with designs that carry an attitude of irreverence and dare I say, angst?
Peach Beast began humbly in 2017. I was screen printing patches in my living room and dyeing clothes in my kitchen. It was very DIY. Through pop up shows, I found a great community of artists, and Peach Beast has eventually grown to what it is today! Peach Beast remains a one woman operation.
While my media and practice continues to evolve, I always focus on telling an honest story, and making people laugh. My designs are all made in small batches to keep things fresh. I am constantly doodling in my sketchbook and coming up with new ideas. I hope they make you take life a little less seriously. Follow me on Instagram to see where I’ll be vending next!
