Haley Cooper has been doing art ever since she can remember. Born in 1998, she was raised in a tumultuous household and placed into guardian care at age 12. At 18 she was adopted by her guardians. She now attends the University of Utah studying anthropology and Spanish where she hopes to become proficient in the Spanish language and leave the U with archaeology skills and tribal knowledge.
Haley’s art mediums span from marker, acrylic, pen, and pencil to watercolor and ink. Her style varies depending on her mood. Because of her feminist ties and connection a matrilineal Cherokee culture, Haley’s artwork often depicts a strong portrayal of women. Other such elements exhibited in her work are plants, Cherokee culture, and death.
