Frequently Asked Questions- about my work, life and career


Hello Everyone!

Okay okay, I know this is something very new and surprising... But I had to. In my almost '10 years' of running this design blog I have been getting a lot of questions from my family and relatives, friends (and strangers), about my work and career (and my life in between these two words/worlds).

So, I thought this new series of blog post will be good to answer all the queries. 

If you want to ask me anything about my life as a surface pattern designer, you can mail me your questions here:  

I will try my best to give very honest and informative answers...

A bit about myself--- I am a self-taught designer. Started late (at 36 ), a housewife, a be-at-home-mom of two little kids, no knowledge about designing... Yes. This is true. Before jumping into this amazing and exciting design career I knew nothing about this term- SURFACE PATTERN DESIGN! I had never even heard about this term before. 

But here I am. Surviving and thriving.

I have completed my 10 full years (oh my GOD! I can't believe it) writing this blog. I have made mistakes and learnt through them.  I still think of myself as a struggler trying to make my way in this vast world of surface designing. 

You can read my previous blog post here   My journey as a  'self- taught' artist.

The one big and common question that comes to me often is how you started / why you chose to become a designer. 

In my next post I will give you all the details --- how to start, where to start, how to search for inspiration, etc. 

If you have any questions you want to ask me, just send me a mail... 

See you all soon.
