Sara Cooper is an artist who works intuitively from a conceptual base to examine the relationship between drawing and making, engaging in the dialogue between fine art and craft.
Sara studied Fine Art and trained as a teacher in the 1990’s, and has since worked extensively in art, design and craft education. She has led, and participated in, a range of initiatives involving a collaborative approach to making artworks, including artist residencies, workshops, projects and exchanges.
She is also a founding member and director of 22 Sheds http://www.22sheds.com working with people on placemaking projects across the North East.
Recent work has responded to heritage settings and collections through drawing, print, ceramics and film. Inspired by social and personal histories, Sara is currently developing work in relation to heritage skills and ecologies in rural landscapes.
