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.
Jessica is a member of the Royal West of England Academy, the Newlyn Society of Artists, and an associate member of the Penwith Society of Arts. She has exhibited widely across Cornwall and the rest of the UK and has recently been invited to show her work at Tate St Ives.
