Q & A with Iva Izman from In My Studio
Can you tell us more about your design background? From what we have seen your initial background and training is in interior design? Did you grow up dreaming of being a designer? Any experiences that you can describe which started you down this path?
I dreamt of becoming a designer since I was 12 (I know it sounds cliche but its true). Growing up, my family moved around quite a bit and so I took it as a positive thing that at least I could decorate my own space-over & over again! My mum was my first inspiration. She's a very artistic person and she was the one who taught me the basics of design: such as coloring etc. I won a few design contests as a child, so that gave me a boost in self confidence and my creativity just blossomed from there.
