She has been encouraged since a very early age to pursue her dream of being an artist by two extremely supportive parents and a long list of inspiring art teachers along the way. Cori is also very appreciative of a local community that has supported and encouraged her art making through the years.
Cori is currently in her 12th year as the art teacher at Hopewell Elementary School in Trinity NC. She loves inspiring her students to view the world around them in new and creative ways and finds that she is inspired by them just as much as they are her. She has also taught various adult and youth classes throughout Randolph County.
A strong love of color, texture and oil paint developed during her years at ECU. Currently she prefers the medium of acrylic, often working on several canvases at a time. Texture and surface manipulation are strong features of Cori’s work; some paintings have a very sculptural quality about them. Trees, birds, animals and altered landscapes are recurring themes of Cori’s colorful abstract paintings. “Even if no one else ever saw my art, I would still do it”, Cori states.
