AMERICAN ARTIST JENNIE COOLEY
“My art dangles somewhere between Christmas lights left up all year and movie popcorn with extra salt,” says American artist Jennie Cooley during a recent interview in her Santa Fe studio. The prestigious Santa Fean magazine compares her work to that of Pop icon Jenny Holzer. But Cooley feels her content is better stuck somewhere between Gary Larson and Gary Trudeau with a few misspelled words thrown in.
The colorful Santa Fe artist is known as printmaker, painter, and doll maker. After studying sculpture in California and printmaking in New Mexico and Italy, her early achievements included contracts with high-end retailers, manufacturers and TV projects plus an exclusive with Sak’s Fifth Avenue.
Know as a visual narrative artist, Cooley has been shown in numerous galleries, collected internationally and featured in magazines, newspapers and online for her pithy content and reckless style with words and color. The prolific artist recently took her winning art to shows in New York and Miami, closing her Canyon Road Gallery to focus on her next series and new direction.
With hot coffee, before-the-birds mornings, and a dog that hates it when she swears, Cooley works from her desert studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico or overlooking the salmon-and-submarine filled waters of Hood Canal in WashingtonState.
“I’m now seeking the world’s best Publisher and Licensers, now, right now.” Cooley concludes, as experience, skill and 64 images form a perfect almost neon Hula hoop with glitter of the artist work.
