CYOP #44 - Embracing Rejection + Giving Yourself the Space to Create with Designer + Artist Anna Joyce

Today’s interview brings us to the Portland studio of Anna Joyce of Anna Joyce Design. Not only is her work absolutely beautiful, but her story is pretty amazing as well. She is an artist, textile designer and soon-to-be author who hasn’t had the easiest road to success.

During the interview, we get into some of the life events that really made her stop and think about her work. We also touch on how important it is to be persistent, give yourself the time and space to create your best work and why failure isn’t always a bad thing.

This is a good one, you guys. Happy listening!
