|"Newlyn School of Art offers some of the best short courses in the UK; taught by some of the most exciting artists working in Cornwall".|
Jessica Cooper has lived and worked in the isolation of West Penwith’s spare and weather worn landscape for most of her life. She studied at Falmouth College and Goldsmith’s, London and is a member of the NSA and an RWA. She exhibits regularly on a national basis, including exhibitions at The Exchange and Newlyn Art Gallery, the RWA and Tate St. Ives. She has previously been awarded for drawing by the University of the West of England and short listed for the finalists exhibition of the National Open Art Competition.
'Her work is loaded with artistic integrity and an appreciation of simply being : her paintings conveying those overwhelming moments of understanding and feeling that life can occasionally dish up. In her subtle hands, less thus really does become very much more, the objects a quietly poetic metaphor for human existence.‘
