Helen Cooper


    Following a career in Academia, I began working with textiles in the 1990s with some success, which gave me the confidence to extend my skills, and later to exhibit in the north-west.

    Inspiration comes from my daily dog walks where I get to see the artistry of the natural world. Re-purposing is at the heart of my work. I am a collector of fabric, driftwood, wire, paper and anything else that attracts me. My art is focused on capturing their colours, shapes, and patterns in a figurative style. For this, I use mixed media techniques, resulting in an eclectic mix of felting, fabric manipulations, collage work and mono-prints, embellished with stitch.

    Recently, I have created sculptures using foraged objects which are focused on narratives relating to the concept of ‘Uncovering Joy’.
