Michael Cooper’s work covers animal, bird and the human figure, large and small-scale carvings in marble, stone and bronze.

Born in Dublin in 1944, Michael studied at a Heatherly’s School of Art and then under Anthony Gray.

A Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors, Cooper has exhibited since 1974, in a wide variety of venues including London and Jersey Zoos, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the Royal Academy of Arts, Gloucester Cathedral Crucible exhibitions and Gallery Pangolin.  Large scale commissions include a reclining figure in Travertine marble for Covent Garden and more recently three bears in Belgian Fossil Marble for Bicester Village. He was also commissioned to sculpt a large black marble gorilla for the late Lord Carrington's garden.

Cooper’s sculptures are characterised by their smooth surfaces which are very tactile and flow with the form of each piece.
