About the Artist


Korinne is an artist and instructor living in Mount Dora, FL with her photographer husband, Charles Dean. She started painting with acrylics 20 years ago as a stress release from her healthcare human resources executive position. Ten years ago, she fell in love with the organic properties of alcohol inks and has made that her primary medium ever since. As a  self taught artist, Korinne has taken  lessons from master acrylic and alcohol ink artists. She is a contributor/instructor with the globally known Alcohol Ink Art Society.

Korinne’s work is inspired by the beauty of nature: the formation of the clouds at sunrise and sunset; the shapes and colors in flowers and foliage; the majesty of mountains; the drama in the shadows; the flights of birds and butterflies, and the presence of both peace and power in water. Her work artwork ranges from abstract to representational.

Korinne’s artwork hangs in private homes and galleries around the globe and has been licensed for two magazine covers. Now that she has made art her full time career, she spends most of her time creating art and art lessons and has an active role at VP, Board of Directors of Artisans of Mount Dora, a not for profit art gallery in Mount Dora, FL.

Korinne provides beginner to intermediate level instruction both at her studio and on line, sharing her techniques for painting with alcohol inks. Find out more about her classes here.

 Custom size orders for matted prints as well as commissions for original artwork are accepted.
