Tell us a little bit about yourself and how Brogan Scott Studio began.

I am an artist and designer based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa. I have always had a creative streak and studied fine arts at university. However, it was only about four years ago that I discovered my love for watercolours, which was definitely a stepping stone to how I ended up doing what I do.

Brogan Scott Studio came about when a talented designer and friend (Nouille Design) asked me to create watercolour illustrations for some of her beautiful calligraphy. From there, everything grew organically, and I am grateful every day that I get to be creative. Initially, I was working full-time and doing art on the side until I decided to take the leap and leave my job. In less than a year, I was able to work for myself full-time, which has been amazing. It hasn’t come super easy, though; leaving a salaried role to pursue something that may or may not work out is always high-stress. I have worked really hard over the past few years to get to where I am now, and I am very proud of where Brogan Scott Studio is today. No risk, no reward!

What is your point of difference in your wedding stationery services?

It would be that everything is fully bespoke to the couple. This means that I work closely with each client to understand their vision and bring it to life, ensuring that every piece reflects their unique style and personality. I love incorporating little elements in the stationery that only the couple would know about, such as inside jokes or special moments from their relationship.

I work with brides & grooms from around the world, and over 50% of my clients live outside of Aotearoa, where I am based. I find it incredibly inspiring to work with clients from across the globe and have their wedding locations, cultures, and backgrounds influence the stationery I create and help bring their wedding vision to life.

What inspires you as an artist?

Travel inspires me to create more. I enjoy visiting museums, galleries, and towns, and admiring architecture. I am fortunate to be able to work remotely, which allows me to travel for extended periods and work simultaneously. This year, I will spend three months in Europe, basing myself in Italy. I am excited to see how my experiences there will influence my artwork.

Another influence is also the clients and couples I work with. Their stories really inspire me a lot, and they have amazing ideas that I would never think of. I am then lucky enough to bring those ideas and concepts to life.

Talk to us about the pastel workshops you offer.

I absolutely love teaching my workshops. When you work alone all day, it can get a bit lonely. So, having a workshop is always a highlight for me. I have been hosting my pastel workshop for about a year now. Initially, I only did it for private events for corporates and hen’s do’s, but I recently made it available to the public. Its popularity has blown me away, I honestly thought only friends and family would attend, but I have had 100+ people attend in the last month.

The pastel workshops are a relaxed approach to discovering the medium. We start with some drawing exercises and then progress to more finished artwork. People are always surprised at how well they can do it. I am currently working on a watercolour workshop, so watch this space!

What are some of your other creative outlets?

I always like to keep myself busy and have many different avenues to put my energy into. Being creative, I find cooking is the most accessible way to create! I have a newfound love for going to the markets at the weekend, and it’s so much more affordable than the supermarkets! I hope to one-day to merge my love for food & art in some way other than wedding stationery.

Plans with Brogan Scott Studio for the future?

I really want Brogan Scott Studio to become a creative hub of lots of different disciplines. This year has very much so been focused on client-based work. Next year, I will be focusing more of my energy on creating art and objects for people’s homes which I am so excited about!
