PROPERBEAST started a long time ago in Pittsburgh, PA. I grew up wild in the suburbs with 6 amazing brothers, a dad that worked bone hard in the gritty steel industry, and a mom who performed miracles daily at home—singing, cooking, cleaning, blessing, folding, fixing, ironing, cooking. . . Thing$ were tight & hand-me-downs were all wrong —so I made stuff.
I heard Blondie on my 1969 atomic Panapet radio & that music saved my soul! But it really came together when I gave up looking thru a million sterile wedding dresses and designed my own —it was MAD— I was after all getting married at The Warhol!
I am as perplexed by life as I am besotted with it. I rescue anything in need that crosses my path. Sometimes I loose my bleep on my kids, but I freaking love them. Kit, my BFF keeps me sane & . . . I’m just MAD for my ZZ.
Thank you to my brilliant seamstress Valentina, Chelsea & Kelly. My Angels Annabel, Eballz, Cynthia, Isa, Anna, Jlo, XTY, Jerome, my NZ family & All My Pets.
Thank you Pittsburgh, Sinead, Chatham, CoolHunters, Body, My 20’s, Desire, Punk, Awareness, Grace. . . .
Most of all, Thank you— little me —you held on & stayed golden.
