Elaine Cooper was born in Lancashire & whilst her love of painting was kindled at primary school. Elaine’s choice of career was as a designer. Elaine Cooper made a name for herself honing her craft during many happy years working for some of the top UK & American textile companies. Ten years ago Elaine seized the opportunity to pursue her first love of painting. Now an established artist Elaine Cooper creates bold, vibrant images that present snatches of real life. Her background in Design has given her the exceptional command of colour and texture used to recreate the all too human and often humorous images you see. The larger than life immaculately dressed ladies in her paintings were inspired by Pearl, Poppy and Pandora, names given to three ladies spotted whilst painting on the French Riviera. Cooper observed them many times during the weeks she spent painting & sketching amongst the narrow alleyways and butter coloured houses of the village and were a great source of entertainment.
Elaine Cooper's work is in private collections both here & on the continent.
