About me and Beautiful Pattern
Hi! I am Beatriz
SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER & ILLUSTRATOR
I KNOW YOUR TIME IS PRECIOUS
THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO KNOW A BIT MORE ABOUT ME!
I am a freelance surface pattern designer & illustrator originally from Madrid (Spain) and actually living with my family in the peaceful country side, in a small village.
I spend most of my time creating mainly vector floral patterns and illustrations, using motifs I get from Nature
There is nothing better than feeling passionate about what you do, allowing all your passion to come forward.
But it took me years to realize it….
THIS IS HOW I STARTED BEING AN ILLUSTRATOR
I remember myself as a small girl always drawing.
I drew lots of different things and normally, all my classmates liked them a lot. I remember that in one occasion, one of them wanted to purchase one of my drawings full of delicious cakes. He wanted to pay me 25 pesetas (a fortune for a small girl!), but I did not accept the offer because I preferred to keep my drawing. I was around 9 years. I would like very much to find that drawing now…
Some years after, one of my teachers met my mom and me. She told us that I clearly had skills to draw, that I was very good creating and that I should continue that way. I remember very well that meeting because I didn’t give her words any credibility. I did’t have that idea about me. I did’t believe I had that ability. I did’t trust myself.
When I went to highschool I met people I considered very talented, who publicly showed their artworks and I felt even more insecure about my “super power”, so I decided to hide it, even more, to buried it and focus on studying other things and go on.
I chose to study advertising at University. It sounded very creative but also professional and serious. I decided to continue that way and when I finished my career, I started working in small advertising companies and progressively I finished working for multinationals in the advertising field.
Those were interesting years, with its good and bad moments, but I always felt I needed to do something different, something more creative.
It took me a long long time to face the situation, quit my previous job and start doing what I always wanted to do. Some people thought I was crazy, just leaving a full time job to start a new adventure at the age of 40, but luckily for me, I was ready to jump and to be honest, it was very challenging and exciting!
From that moment, I started creating illustrations and finding my own voice. I was very thankful that people commissioned different projects, so I felt I made the right decision.
UNTIL I FELL IN LOVE WITH PATTERNS
One day I decided to take a course about vector patterns. Initially, they were very challenging for me as I was used to working with pixels, but after developing my vector skills, I realized how much I loved creating them.
Therefore I seriously considered focussing on them and redirecting my career towards surface pattern design.
This is how Beautiful Pattern was born and now I feel very grateful to be able to do the things I love!
