Elaine Cooper was born in Lancashire and whilst her love of painting was kindled at primary school Elaine’s choice of career was as a designer. Elaine 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 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. These girls spent their time gossiping, paddling and generally having fun. Elaine observed them many times during the weeks she spent painting & sketching amongst the narrow alleyways and butter coloured houses of the village. They were a great source of entertainment.
Elaine’s work has been reproduced as limited edition prints for more than five years now with her work in private collections both here & on the continent. The appeal of Elaine’s paintings is in the exuberance & sense of fun they recreate. Her characters are always enjoying themselves to the full, a quality Elaine tries to emulate in her own life.
