Who says you can’t turn your passion into a career? Meet the woman proving you can. Sydney-based Bronte Goodieson has been selling her illustrations since she was 13 years old. What started as a fan base of her parents’ friends, has now grown into a full-time business because she wasn’t afraid to follow her heart (sorry / not sorry for the extra cheese).

Uncertain how to turn her love of art into a career after school, she decided to study a Fine Arts & Design Course at TAFE NSW for their hands-on approach to artistic learning and creativity. She now creates artwork both traditionally and digitally, selling her new and original prints, cards, stationery and more from an online store and [IRL] markets. You can also check out her fun work on her Instagram page.

But don’t take our word for it. Let Bronte tell you more about her journey in the video below.
