Elana Cooper / Flower Pots Tee
Elana Cooper's wonderful cut-out flower forms adorn this colorful and bright tee. Cooper's original artworks are freestanding sculptures in cut plywood, painted in bold monochrome; we composed a collection of three potted plant designs into silhouettes to make this three-color screenprinted tee.

Elana Cooper (b. 1973, San Francisco) is primarily known for her striking, large-scale floral silhouettes though animals are also a common subject of her work. Cooper paints in bold strokes, the background in one color and the subject in a contrasting color, giving her representational work an abstract quality.
Cooper began working in Creativity Explored's studio in 2013 and says, "I never made art before coming here. I didn't know I had the skills for it!" In 2014 the San Francisco Girls Chorus (SFGC) selected Cooper as one of the CE artists comissioned to create cut-out animal props for the chorus’ dramatic concert production of Noye’s Fludde (Noah’s Flood), a modern adaptation of a 15th century mystery play.
