Vanessa Cooper

Vanessa Cooper

Vanessa Cooper, the esteemed British artist hailing from Hampshire, has been honing her craft since her adolescence. It was during her time at Portsmouth University in 1987 that she first showcased her remarkable talent. Renowned for her audacious and imaginative artwork, Vanessa Cooper possesses an unwavering passion for colour, asserting, “It is the allure of colour that never fails to captivate me.”

British Artist

Drawing inspiration from both the wonders of nature and her own personal experiences, including enchanting forests, vibrant gardens, beloved pets, and the innocence of children, her creations pulsate with both sensuality and humour, infusing them with an undeniably vivacious quality. Often lauded as a true native artist, Vanessa predominantly utilises oils alongside various other mediums, repeatedly refining her compositions until they are distilled to their essential elements.

Interestingly, according to Cooper, the act of omitting elements from her paintings proves to be a far more formidable task than incorporating a multitude of subjects. This inclination towards minimalism lends her art an air of intrigue and elegance.

In addition to her artistic endeavours, Vanessa Cooper generously imparts her wisdom as a teacher at The ArtHouse, Meath, a non-profit institution that prides itself on nurturing artistic excellence among adults with learning difficulties. It is an environment she holds dear, as it allows her to share her joy for painting with others.


The vibrancy of Vanessa’s paintings owes much to her carefully curated palette, as highlighted in the esteemed publication Artists and Illustrators in February 2012. Her choice of colors contributes to the heartwarming and opulent qualities that permeate her artwork, leaving viewers filled with a resounding sense of happiness and contentment.
