Dora Cooper was born in Notre Dame Bay and also has roots in Trinity Bay. After a successful career in healthcare, she now devotes her time and energy to her painting.
Dora has always had a love of art and has studied under a number of well known local and internationally acclaimed artists. She continues to take workshops to further her skills and knowledge.
“I have travelled extensively throughout the island and parts of Labrador and have been inspired by our culture and the natural beauty of our province.
Our rugged landscape is subject to the effects of light and weather conditions and as such is never static, ever changing, but always beautiful.
My paintings are my interpretation of the natural world around me and my aim is to inspire my viewers and enable them to see through my eyes those special moments in time that will resonate with them. “
“ Artists use their skills to tell a story or evoke emotion; it could be a memory from the past or a feeling which comes forth to make the experience personal for the viewer. A painting is like a mystery, it only tells part of the story, the viewer has to fill in the rest”.
