Market Art – Out to Lunch – It’s Acadiana
Many of us aspire to a life in the arts. For evidence of that, you only have to look at the massive popularity of long-running shows like American Idol and The Voice. Apparently, competitive sketching does not make compelling viewing, so we don’t see TV shows about visual artists. But there are many people who have dreams of being able to make a living from their painting or drawing.
Cayla Zeek is a visual artist. A designer. And illustrator. Cayla is also the owner of the store, Mattea’s Hand – which you can find on Etsy and on Jefferson Street in Lafayette – where she sells her paintings, drawings and her wide range of unique and often quirky, greeting cards.
Brandy Cavitt works with small businesses to give them the advantages of marketing and presentation that bigger companies have, without the price tag that PR and social media consultancies usually charge. It’s a business model that’s working for Brandy and for her clients and it’s a lifestyle choice that keeps Brandy grounded, focused, and most importantly, in Acadiana.
