Artwork title: Morwen Reclining | Artwork media: Graphite and Pastel on Paper
Corinne Lands graduated from Hornsey College of Art (now Middlesex University) in 1975 with a degree in Fine Art. After 10 years in Commercial Photography she went on to teach Art and Photography up to A level before moving on to work in both local and national government offices with a short period as an OFSTED inspector of secondary art. During this period the opportunities to undertake work of her own were limited but she found time to continue with her love of drawing, particularly working from life.
Since taking early retirement in 2010 she has been able to focus on her own work and to develop her drawing. She runs classes in basic drawing techniques for the U3A and for a local charity which supports patients with cancer.
She has exhibited locally at The Williamson Art Gallery open exhibitions, The Macclesfield Annual Open exhibition, The Wirral Festival of Firsts and Liverpool Academy open exhibitions; she is also a friend of The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum.
Corinne works mainly in graphite on paper, but experiments with watercolour, pastel and ink to explore weight, shape and form from life.
