brokesy's upbringing in the forests of northwestern Ontario (that's the province in Canada, not the city in California) has greatly influenced her aesthetic. Looking back, it becomes apparent that the half-mile walk through the woods from the school-bus to her home (or run if her brothers weren't with her, yelling and singing at the top of her lungs to scare off any bears that might want to eat her) was probably the initial inspiration for her first line of attack! pillows.
She eventually left the bears and acclimated herself to urban life by moving from forest to small town to bigger town to city to city to city. She eventually relocated to the massive sprawl that is Los Angeles in 2000 to attend CalArts, where she received her MFA in costume design. As well as making laptop accessories and pillows, brokesy works as a costume designer/stylist/wardrobe girl.
