Wilhelmina Grant-Cooper is a self-taught visual artist and native New Yorker who uses found objects and mixed media, which she repurposes into assemblage art. Wilhelmina has mounted numerous solo exhibitions in Harlem, Texas, Alaska, and Alabama, and has participated in group exhibitions at venues throughout the east coast.
As a community arts instructor, she uses the arts to nurture the creativity of elder participants through arts projects at senior centers in Harlem, Washington Heights, Brooklyn and the Upper East Side.
Wilhelmina is the founder of SISTAAH, Inc. (Survivors Inspiring Sisters Through Art and Advocacy for Health), an arts-based non-profit organization which seeks to inform, encourage and facilitate access to early detection of breast cancer by connecting the medically underserved to free screening and support service information.
She has self-published her first book, A Feeling of Fullness: Insights of a Divinely Guided Journey Beyond Breast Cancer (2016, Xlibris Publishing Company) which chronicles her experience from the nearly-missed breast cancer diagnosis at age 37 through her present-day life as an artist/ author/health awareness advocate. The book contains color photographs of visual art relating to the topic of early detection, advocacy and cancer survivorship.
