Vanessa Cooper

Vanessa Cooper has built a reputation as a bold, imaginative artist with a deep love of colour, “…for me it’s the colour that does it every time.” Vanessa Cooper takes her models from nature and from family life – from forests, gardens, pets, and children. There are deep veins of both sensuality and humour in her work, which enhance their vitality. Often categorised as a ‘naïve’ artist, Vanessa Cooper works principally in oils and a variety of other mediums, redrawing her compositions over and over again to pare down the picture’s content to its basic elements, “It’s harder to leave things out of a painting than to pile a load of stuff in.”

Vanessa Cooper also teaches at The ArtHouse, Meath – a non profit Centre of Artistic Excellence for adults with learning difficulties.
