Benjamin Cooper wasted no time in showing his artistic talent. From a young age he displayed an aptitude for looking at a subject objectively and then transferring that to paper. Actively involved in art as a youngster, he was only 12 when he won a NZ and the South Pacific Lions Peace Poster competition. Tackling a certificate in art and design at BOP Polytechnic was a natural pathway. His art has continued to develop over the years and the characters he creates have stories to tell. Ben will also be selling delicious homemade family jam as well as his artwork.
