Stephen Jon Cooper trained in 3D design at Bath Academy of Art, U.K. . Subsequently he followed his delight in visual and physical theatre to study with Mike Chase and the Mask Studio and came to be a specialist in Mask and Puppet performance as a maker, a performer and a teacher. His work explores the human imperative to make marks and leave a record of time/life passing. His work investigates the interface between art and craft, between art and therapy and between the collaborative and individual processes of creativity. Central to his work has been the discipline of drawing, and this has come to dominate his output in recent years enhanced during the Covid years with greater opportunity for introspection.
