Laura Cooper has been creating art since she was old enough to hold a paintbrush or a pencil. Her work has been described as colourful, eccentric, whimsical, and humorous. She loves sharing her work with others and aims to brighten the day of anyone who happens to see it.

She has taken classes in Drawing, Painting, Graphic Design, Photoshop, Film, Photography, Animation, Sculpture, Ceramics, Web Design, Printmaking, Intermedia, Art History, and Contemporary Art Critique, and has experimented with many different styles and techniques of creating (both contemporary and traditional) such as watercolour painting, life drawing, performance art, frame-by-frame animation, installation and site-specific works, welding, woodworking, and using a pottery wheel, among other things.

Her favourite way of working is creating paintings that utilize three-dimensional elements, such as attaching found objects to the canvas, paper mache, or other less-traditional materials such as Crayola’s “Model Magic,” as well as using many different kinds of mediums on one piece of work, including (but not limited to) markers, melted crayons, scrapbooking paper, acrylic paint, watercolour paint, glitter glue, and cardboard.
