Joanne Cooper—Joanne is an expressionist painter. A sculptor. A jewelry designer. And somewhat of a Renaissance woman. Her work is alive and bold, full of pure energy and raw emotion.
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, she moved to New York to follow her passion as an artist.
Studying painting at the Art Student’s League, she was soon exhibiting her artwork in shows throughout the Northeast; winning National Competitions in juried shows at the National Academy of Design, Newport Festival of the Artist; and one-woman shows in galleries in New York, Chicago, East Hampton and throughout the East Coast.
Joanne Cooper’s body sculpture and jewelry design has been featured in many designer fashion collections on the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Women’s Wear Daily, The New York Times, Essence and others.
Her work has also been displayed and distributed at high quality fashion retailers including Henri Bendel, Saks Fifth Avenue, Kruger Gallery, Hanae Mori, I Magnin, Lord & Taylor and others.
Her vintage collection of limited edition and one of a kind jewelry from the 70's and 80's are now available.
