Cooper and Colleen
Cooper and Colleen is a Melbourne drawing & stitching label. Named after two women Kathy Cooper and Colleen Johnson, one who was raised in Ireland by nun’s who refused to teach her to sew because she was left handed, and one who was always stitching beautiful things – both incredibly nurturing & caring women.
This label is founded by Anna Rees, of Melbourne Australia. Anna completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Design & Photography in 2007 at Elam School of Fine Arts in New Zealand. Her current practice involves setting up this label, mentored by independent incredible women from Sisterworks Australia, to explore what it means to be a creative, crafting, woman in this ‘modern’ time.
