As one of Cornwall’s leading contemporary painters, Jessica Cooper has lived and worked in the isolation of West Cornwall’s sparse and weather worn landscape for most of her life.
Having studied at Falmouth College and Goldsmith’s London, Cooper exhibits on a regular national basis, including exhibitions at The Exchange and Newlyn Art Galleries and Tate St. Ives: she is an RWA (Royal West of England Academician) and a member of the NSA (Newlyn Society of Artists). Cooper’s work is held in numerous private and public collections worldwide.

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. – Elizabeth Knowles OBE
