A child of the Stolen Generations, Cooper was one of the child artists from the Carrolup Native Settlement whose paintings and drawings were part of the Herbert Mayer Collection of Carrolup Artwork gifted last year to the people of Western Australia.
Cooper continued making art beyond Carrolup and despite occasional imprisonment, is acknowledged as being a formative influence on later generations of Noongar artists.
