Her joys are gardening where she grows floral subjects to paint and working with children. "Children are the "FUTURE" and it's up to ALL OF US to put forth more effort to enjoy and help them learn daily".

Corrine participated in the Callaway County "Paint Out" (Chatauqua) in Fulton by completing two landscapes on State Road "F" titled "White Cloud Church" and "Red Barn".

In April 2001, she received First and Third Place awards in Jefferson City for these two paintings. Plein air (natural light) painting outdoors, in the elements, is definitely a challenge in the elements, but she enjoys meeting interested and kind people when doing so.

She participated in Artists Along the Katy Trail , painted, exhibited and won an award at the Rozier Gallery for her painting titled, "Artist's View of the Capitol".
She also participated in a competition to portray "Today's Views" along the actual Lewis and Clark trial for the Bicentennial Anniversary at the State Capitol. She completed two paintings and both were accepted  for the 3rd floor Rotunda exhibit in the capital.

Corrine loves to paint the people and landscapes "of Today" because, as a mother of two young children, she is all too aware just how quickly time passes and things change. Life is so very precious. It is important to her to capture ordinary, yet inspirational, moments on canvas and she enjoys them to the fullest each time they are appreciated and enjoyed by others.
