Corinne Lalin is a painter and art educator from Upper Black Eddy, PA. Corinne works in many media, including oil, encaustic, needle felting, ink, assemblage, mixed media and sculpture. Corinne studied at the University of Pennsylvania with Neil Welliver, earning her MFA degree in 1989. Before that, she earned a BA in Fine Arts from Smith College in Northampton, MA.
About her work, Corinne says “my paintings reflect a joy in seeing and absorbing the world around me. During the heightened visual experience of painting, I enter a haven where I feel safe to respond emotionally to events in my life. In this way, by focusing on plastic issues I transcend my initial perceptual experience and allow other elements, such as symbolic meaning and visual memory, to enter my work.”
