Madelaine Lyons Cooper is a Toronto based artist working in printmaking, painting, textiles, new media, installation and artist books. She completed her BFA in Criticism and Curatorial Studies from OCAD University in 2011, with a studio focus in print media. Prior to her studies at OCAD she studied silversmithing and jewellery making, and has worked as an assistant editor at an indie arts and lit magazine, a picture framer and a transcriber of documentary footage.
Growing up with two documentary film editors for parents left her with an enduring interest in storytelling, and the way we structure our histories. This is evident in much of her work and continues to be a driving force in her practice.
