Corinne graduated with a BS in Industrial Design, Visual Communication from The Ohio State University way back when Macs had 4” screens. She worked in corporate advertising for a few years until she and her husband moved to rural Idaho. After taking an oil painting class from her mentor and friend, artist Robert Moore, she fell in love with the creative process and hasn’t stopped since.
Corinne is daily inspired by the ordinary that surrounds her. She loves bright colors and interesting shapes. Bikes, Flowers, Converse shoes and VW busses. Her paintings are known by their bold palette knife and brush textures, compelling shapes and vibrant chords of color. Lately she has been consumed with texture, layering and the sheer difficulty and challenge of creating abstract art when she is wired to paint representationally.
“I am inspired daily by the ordinary yet extraordinary things around me. The line of an interesting building, the wild abandon of color in a blooming garden, the delight I feel when a colorful VW bus passes me in traffic. I like to experiment with various mediums and applications. I hope my paintings bring you delight and make you pause, look around and smile at all the beauty that surrounds you.”
