LaShanna April Cooper

Antigua | United States

April Cooper was born in Trenton, New Jersey in 1985, to mother, Brenda Matthews (African-American), and father, Theron Charles (Antiguan). She began to have an interest in art shortly after elementary school. She bought my first sketchbook and haven't stopped since. Throughout her high school years she had many art teachers; but no one as persistent and encouraging as Michael Morris. "He was always there when I had a problem or to teach me a new genre of art. Luckily for me I had him for 4 periods of art my senior year, which made it clear that I was majoring in Art in college. So when I went to University of Maryland Eastern Shore I actually majored in Art Education.(smile)" It was there that she met Professors Harrington, Hudson Holt and Demanche,  her new art team! "In addition to my team, Dr. Satchell my advisor, helped and supported my work. After college I started a family and continued producing artwork, now I am expanding my views and talents everyday. Currently living in Mercer County! Today I concentrate on acrylic paintings, and illustration of black woman with natural hair."
