Gillian Cooper was born in London and studied at the Camberwell School of Art, before doing a BA at Bristol and an MA at Cardiff. Since then she has worked and exhibited widely, having been in residencies in Germany, Belgium and Serbia. In 2005 she became a new member of the NSA, having been active in artist-led exhibitions (PALP) and other shows in Cornwall since 2001.
Cooper now (2010) works from an artist's studio at Trewidden Gardens, Buryas Bridge, west of Penzance. Her semi-abstract paintings, drawings and limited-edition prints illustrate transitional moments and metamorphosis in landscape. See www.nsanewlyn.com for further details. She also offers workshops to individuals and groups in a range of art subjects. See www.outofplace.org.uk and www.keap.org.uk in reference to workshop opportunities.
