About her work, Corinne says “my paintings reflect my 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 such as color, edges, and the rhythm of inner relationships, I transcend my initial perceptual experience and allow other elements, such as symbolic meaning and visual memories, to enter my work. Through the process of painting, I connect with the world around me.”
