PJ Cobbs

British-born, New York-based artist and teacher PJ Cobbs is a former fashion journalist who gave up the Prada for a paintbrush. After a fortuitous meeting with legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld, who personally gave her a tour of the Chanel atelier in Paris, Cobbs decided her medium of choice was silk.


She creates home decor (which has appeared in the New York Times), portraits for wall hangings for private clients. Nowadays she scours the streets for inspiration for her "New York Neighborhoods" series of paintings of local neighborhoods--places that she has connections to, or hopes to create.


Cobbs has exhibited at the Gallery of Wearable Art, Casa Frela Gallery in Harlem, the American Gallery in New York, Hamilton Landmark Gallery, the Harlem Textile Works and in Scope Hamptons. One of her pillows is in a 9-11 collection at the Smithsonian Institute. Her work is currently sold at the NiLu Gallery in Harlem, online on and at various art festivals, like the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit, at the Union Square Holiday Market and through her Instagram @pjcobbsarts.
