Cooley says: &dlquo;I am attracted to three-dimensional art and typically work with wood or other natural materials. I am drawn to the edges of roads and fields, to dilapidated barns and abandoned factories, rich patinas formed by layers of paint or varnish and to the ways in which time alters surfaces with weathering, fading and blending of colors.&drquo;
