Eric Cooper is an eclectic artist based in Barnes, south west London. He has always had a thing about light and is know as the 'Lightwizard' due to his unique style and innovative work, especially with stained glass which brings out the prismatic colours from ordinary daylight. He often works in collaboration with his wife Jennifer.
