Dena Cooper

Dena Cooper
All
Soft and skilfully painted, Dena Cooper’s fashion illustrations also offer moments of striking contrast and intensity. Her lifelike models look as they could walk right off the page and join in with your conversation.

With a background in fashion design, Dena is now a leading New York illustrator with a growing list of industry clients. Transplanted into Brooklyn from Fredricksburg, Virginia, she loves New York and Fashion Week in particular. “I’m very influenced by street style that I see around the city, specifically the effortless chic that so many New Yorkers exude walking down the street.”

Further inspiration comes from designers like Marchesa, Dior, Delpozo, and Viktor & Rolf, but Dena also loves reading, running, a good cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Training

Starting off in fine arts, Dena moved onto a fashion design course with a strong emphasis on fashion illustration while at Radford University in Virginia.

Approach

One of Dena’s images begins with a pencil study based on references, complete with in-depth shading and detail. That will become the basis for her watercolour, enhancing shading and value in the composition. Dena also enjoys using gouache, ink and coloured pencils along the way, as needed. Then it’s into Photoshop to clean up the image, adding splashes of watercolour and backgrounds, before delivering it digitally to the client.

Style

Dena describes her style as a softer version of the truth, with bursts of realism and flares or blooms of paint to convey an element of artistry that the camera just can’t capture. Photorealism, with washes of colour and splatter add to the fun and character of a piece.
