If you are anything like me, you’ll agree that feeling great starts from within, steered by your life experiences, relationships, your home and work environment's too. Art is an inside-out-expression, that can speak to the senses, even if you only caught a fleeting glance.
Who I Am...
A self-taught London-based figurative and portraiture artist, JA Cooke works primarily in oils. Born in Britain to Jamaican parents, she enjoyed a lengthy career in creative services and in 2014 took the momentous decision to realise her dream of becoming an artist. Cooke went on to develop her technique by studying both contemporary and the Old Masters, and has created a stylistically and thematically varied portfolio. Cooke strives to document and commemorate the achievements of individuals from the African diaspora – those celebrated and those omitted from the canvas of British history.
