Natalie Cooperman — Freedom's kind of scary.
Play • 1 hr 3 min

Natalie Cooperman aka Nattmade: textile designer, and an illustrator. I talk to Natalie, who after being in the fashion industry for over 15 years is taking her passion and rekindling her love for making art.

"Just start drawing … you are going to make a lot of ugly ones before you get the one you want."

Visiting Nattmade in her apartment, we discuss what has made her into the artist she is today. I learned that while working for various fashion companies, Natalie was inspired to create again, and hasn't stopped since. She has had art shows at local bars, created an ABC book based on animals she has drawn for her daughter and explains her love for Jackson Pollack.

Nattmade keeps on creating because she just can't stop, it gives her peace.
