Eileen Cooper

Born 1953, Glossop, Derbyshire, England.

From 1969-70 Eileen Cooper undertook a foundation course at the school of art in Ashton-under-Lyne. From 1971-74 she studied at Goldsmiths' College in London and then from 1974-77 at the Royal College of Art in London.  She became a visiting lecturer at Central St Martin's School of Art.

Her figurative work in strong colours is imbued with a strong emotional intensity.  Solo exhibitions include Air Gallery 1979, Artsite Gallery 1988 and a touring exhibition organised by Benjamin Rhodes Gallery that was exhibited at the Mead Gallery in 1996.

Her work is included in the collections of the Arts Council, the British Council and Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The suite of etchings was purchased in 1991 by the Friends of the Mead.
