Hi! My name is Oksana. I am an artist, textile designer, and a creative soul. I help customers envision and design beautiful products that will wow and connect their customers. I am also passionate about sharing my experience of running a textile design business with fellow creatives.

Up to this point, I created more than 5000 vector repeat patterns and worked on more than 58 freelance surface pattern design projects. In this video, I talk about my experience getting started on the path of a self-taught textile designer.

I’ve been receiving many questions on how to get started and wanted to share my experience and what helped me to start and to grow my creative business.

I am talking about how to start a career in textile design or how to become a surface pattern designer :

1) Call yourself what you want to become. Write it down and tell people.

2) My iStock “illustrator” story which empowered me to become a professional illustrator and later textile designer.

3)Design your patterns, order them on Spoonflower fabric, and hold them in your hands. Look at them every day. Show people. Then create more.

You can order your patterns on Spoonflower fabric here: https://www.spoonflower.com/create

*I am not affiliated with Spoonflower. Only have experience as a customer and designer with them.

I hope I gave you some ideas and inspiration on how to start as a textile designer or how to become a surface pattern designer. Please let me know if you feel that my advice as a professional textile designer has been useful for you.
