Working as a surface pattern designer

In this episode of the Design and Shine podcast, I talk to Australian textile designer and Illustrator Brook Gossen. And she creates really beautiful and colourful artwork and has a really fun and gorgeous brand.

Brook didn’t start her career as an artist but after working in a different area and having her family she felt was missing and that something was a creative outlet. She won a course where she learnt about colour and started her creative journey.

It wasn’t until she participated in a 100-day challenge where she aimed to create a new piece of art every day that her gorgeous style began to evolve.

Brook and I dive into:

  • how she developed her signature style
  • her beautiful studio space
  • how she stays motivated
  • her experience in licensing her designs
  • tips for those that are starting out and wanting to sell their work
  • some exciting upcoming projects

Plus much more!
