From 1950 to 1956 Cohen was married to painter, Alex Katz. She lived with painter, John Grillo, from 1957 to 1962. She later married photographer, Bill Miller in the 1970s. Cohen taught art at many institutions, including the Philadelphia College of Art, and had paintings in public collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Later in life, she moved to eastern Long Island, New York, where she continued to teach and work.
