We believe that style & the environment go hand in hand. Gooseberry Designs is an illustration and design studio based in Los Gatos, California. I am inspired by travel and adventure. I have been lucky to have started traveling at a very early age. From the time I was a baby my parents began taking me to visit my relatives in India and they chose a different city to explore on the way, on every trip. I've seen a lot and learned a lot through these trips and all of these experiences have transformed my worldview. Most importantly though, I learned that there are many ways to answer a question and many solutions to solve a problem. What we commonly do in the Western world is not the way things may be done elsewhere...so be creative! Creativity can come from anywhere and more often than not I am inspired by the ordinary things around me, the everyday things we take for granted. I love how a change in seasons or the juxtaposition of disparate objects will completely change the way we perceive what is around us. Essentially turning something mundane into the unique. At Gooseberry Designs, our designs are more than just lines on paper. Maps represent where we come from, where we have been and where we are going. The imagery reminds us of places near and dear to our hearts and important moments in our lives. Leaving behind a career in neuroscience, I started Gooseberry Designs in 2006. When my husband and I learned that we were going to have a baby, it sparked a motivation to try new things in my life. I knew I didn't want to be away from my newborn and I saw it as the perfect time to pursue my passion for art and design. I am so fortunate that each day at work is so different. It is challenging and rewarding - I can't imagine doing anything else.
