An image of a piece of artwork created by Athena Cooper

Athena Cooper

Athena Cooper is a professional artist and therapeutic arts practitioner based in Calgary, Canada. Self-taught as an acrylic painter, her artwork is strongly influenced by her love of the vibrant colours and interplay of light found in stained glass.

Born with the rare genetic disorder, Osteogenesis Imperfecta (aka ‘brittle bone disease’), and a wheelchair-user since the age of six, the images Athena creates appear as though they have been passed through her own glass-like nature to become windows into how she sees the world.
