Sarah Cooper discovers and absorbs inspiration and artistic functional applications from the world around her—whether in nature, or in the myriad structures and creations of man, be they new or old.
Sarah, a South Louisiana native who grew of age in Knoxville, TN., parlayed a Communication Degree from the University of Tennessee, raw talent and a year of study at the Paris American Academy in Fine Art and Design Program into acceptance at Parsons School of Design in New York.
After studying in Parsons School of Design in Paris’ Fashion Design Program, Sarah followed that up with an Interior Design Degree from Parsons School of Design in New York.
These experiences served to reinforce, even strengthen her love of travel, culture, food and cuisine, art, photography, interior and exterior architecture and documentaries.
Sarah also gained experience in the television and film industry, working as production coordinator and later associate producer for ESPN, Animal Planet, HGTV and DIY Networks.
While living in Los Angeles, Sarah was employed by New Regency. Working in both the art department and as a product assistant, her credits include diverse productions ranging from Alvin & The Chipmunks to director David Ayers’ adaptation of James Ellroy’s Street Kings.
But the pull of interior and exterior design was too strong, leading Sarah back to the South, where she both remodeled and built residential homes.
Sarah studies shapes, interiors and exteriors, colors, textiles, wood, wicker, marble … in short, the world around her. Not least of all, she studies people. In particular- how they live, and function best, in the spaces they occupy.
