Doug Cocker was born in Alyth, Perthshire and trained in sculpture at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee.

Much of his work is exhibited in Scotland, but he has strong local connections having lectured for ten years at Nene College, Northampton.

A major sculpture “Song of Sisyphus’ was carved in Ferry Meadows and exhibited there for over 20 years. 

Much of his work reflects contemporary social and political issues, including State of a Nation created in 1986 which depicts a temple on rockers with a wrecking ball locked in the columns.
