Meet Cathy Cooper of My Art Studio: Blantonia and My Band: The Great Sadness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cathy Cooper.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am an artist and a musician. Not necessarily in that order but I am both. I started sewing when I was nine and became obsessed with making stuff thereafter. I made a lot of my own clothes. At the same time, I had a growing interest in music. Primarily blues and Led Zeppelin. Jimi Page was and still remains a huge influence on me.
It all starts there.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Being an artist is never a smooth road. Never. The more I make the more I take a dive into a constant state of questioning my purpose, my mortality and my intent. But that is my commitment. And without that commitment, there is no making.

That life choice is not for pussies. Believe it.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about my art studio: Blantonia / my band: The Great Sadness – what should we know?
I don’t have a company. I do make great music and I have faith that my art is true to who I am. That’s what I am known for. I believe.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
-objectivity
-clarity
-discernment
-bluntness
