About the Artist
Kat Cooper is a graduate of the Bachelor of Fine Art program from the University of West Florida with a focus in Studio Art. She likes to explore feminist themes through the trials of being a woman with a disability, as well as the fragility and mortality of the human body. Cooper also creates a sense of empathy and understanding between disabled and non-disabled people by creating works that displays themes of overcoming trials within one’s self and by adding braille to make her works multi-textural as well as accessible on multiple levels. Cooper likes to create works using many different kinds of mediums including oil paint or water color mixed with other mediums in order to create tactile images with depth and interest. She also enjoys using bright, saturated colors to draw the viewer in. Despite the eye condition being progressive and continuing to affect her vision more over time, Cooper plans to continue moving forward in her field due to her passion for the medium.
