Jessica Cooper RWA

"'On her own work' "

Jessica Cooper was born in 1967. She began her studies at Falmouth School of Art and went on to receive her degree from Goldsmiths College London in 1989. Her work has been compared to the Japanese Haiku: much substance and meaning is communicated with a few well considered lines. As one critic said, her work possesses "an authority and maturity of line filled with promise". The title of each piece is as carefully chosen as the composition, and Jessica's audiences are often delighted by her quirky sense of humour.
