About Mary Valle-Cooper...


I’m a self-taught artist and have been drawing and creating some form of art since I could hold a crayon. I graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in Psychology and Graphic Communications. I have worked in the Marketing/Public Relations/Advertising fields in healthcare. I founded Yorké Design Studio in 1993 as a freelance marketer and illustrator specializing in book design for self-publishers. I have been a substitute teacher for Pearland ISD for seven years. It has been rumored that I will sneak an art lesson every now and again in class instead of math or reading (shhhh).


I have three very artistic children and TWO little Yorkies that run the house. Yes, the same Yorkie that is immortalized in The ArtRoom logo, and she now has a new friend to boss us around.
