In this article, I am going to tell you basic details about Cooke Maroney, so stay tuned till last.
Cooke Maroney Background
Cooke Maroney was born in Middlebury, Vermont, United States in the year 1985. Two years after his birth the family shifted to Leicester as his parents wanted to live a simple and peaceful life away from the hustle of the city. In 1990, his parents opened a farm called Oliver Hill Farm which is a shelter of more than hundreds of animals. When Cooke grew up he came back to the city to pursue his higher studies. He joined New York University to study “Art History”.
His passion for art came from his father who was an art dealer and head of paintings at Christie’s Auction House. Cooke worked as an artist in his initial days. He worked at the very famous Gagosian Gallery which is known for its contemporary art exhibition. Talking about the present scenario, Cooke Maroney is the director of Gladstone Gallery which is known for its unique collection of house pieces from artist’s like- Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, Matthew Barney, Carroll Dunham, etc.
Cooke Maroney is not fond of social media. He is not active on Twitter and when you look at his Instagram profile tells much about it. He has a private Instagram handle with a display picture of his art gallery (Gladstone Gallery).

The Private Dating
Like I said to you earlier that it was a very strange love story of a celebrity dating a common artist, so! The duo doesn’t want any media involvement. It was even said that Lawrence dropped her pet Pippi at her parent’s farm so that the media won’t follow her on the couple’s daily walking session. However, the pair could not stay away from the media spotlight for a longer time. The duo was spotted many times on the outings, wearing matching outfits.
