It is ironic that artist Vanessa Cooper shares her name with an adult film star because her charming paintings are the embodiment of innocence.  Hampshire born, raised and based, her often idyllic works feature scenes from life in the English countryside painted in a style reminiscent of folk art.  Bold colors and humorous compositions bring to mind naive painters Maud Lewis, Seraphine Louis, and John Kane.  Coooper accepts commissions and more of her work is available on her website.
