We’re launching 2016 with Cathy Cooper, an eternal, tell-it-like-it-is rebel who battled a destructive addiction to heroin and alcohol and resurrected herself as an artist of all mediums (she plays in a rock band, she’s a sculptor, a painter, and a performance artist). By relentlessly making art, the 55-year-old says “Suck it!” to our culture’s notion that a woman’s creativity comes with an expiration date. More so, in effortless layers of camouflage, stripes, and plaid, Cathy shows the corporate, formulaic social-media universe the all-inspiring power of individuality on display.
For more from the one whose silver hair makes her the edgiest girl-crush, watch Cathy’s What’s Underneath above!
With warmth and love,
Elisa + Lily
