Freedoms a little scary.

“Just start drawing … you are going to make a lot of ugly ones before you get the one you want.” — Natalie Cooperman, Textile Designer, and Illustrator.

This episode’s guest is Natalie Cooperman aka Nattmade. She is a textile designer and an illustrator, who after being in the fashion industry for over 15 years is taking her passion and rekindling her love for making art.

Today I visit Nattmade in her apartment to 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.

An educator, designer, and a creative catalyst, George is a native New Yorker who started a podcast in 2017, because he didn't like to write. He also wanted a way to learn and chronicle varied ways or making. We hope you enjoy his journey.
