ARTIST INTERVIEW: Pietsie Campbell of Pietsie
Pietsie Campbell is a wonderful artist whom has channelled her many inspirations into Pietsie, a line of cozy, comfy basics for children and women, all crafted in California. We spoke to her about her about creativity, environment and studio essentials.
What is your background and how have your past experiences fed into your art?
I was a painting and photography major in college and then I was a graphic designer for 15 years which has helped me a lot.
Do you feel that your environment feeds into work and if so, what makes your work distinctively Californian?
Yes, definitely, I’m making clothes for the California climate. I imagine them being suitable for camping in Joshua Tree, having dinner in town or picnicking on the beach.
What are your top 3 studio essentials?
A computer, a smartphone and a pair of scissors.
