As a surface designer, Dee specializes in working with silk and silk blends, which lends to the name of her brand - Dee Silkie. Dee first designs colorful patterns and motifs on 100% silk yardage. She then works with local Canadian graphic designers who turn her silk creations into digital format. After Dee's custom designs are digitized they are sent to a printing company and manufacturer who then turns Dee's creations into wearable art.
