    Hi,I like your no bullshit philosophy…..the art world is drowning in bullshit .So refreshing to see a do-er rather than a bullshitter.

    Check out my no bullshit stuff.

  4. Hi Corinne! a great surprise your art today, like the sunshine in this end of winter, in this pure sky-blue in Italy…your art is uproarious! so poetic, rare in this period (very long) of nonsense art, useless, black & grey, ugly intentionally only for to seem intelligent…I don’t stand this world -art more..

    Hi Corinna,

    Congratulations on your interview on!

    I enjoyed reading your interview but find it curious you don’t like to have artwork in your home. Is there a reason? For me that is a real perk of being a painter! I can’t imagine not having my home full of artwork!

    Kind regards, Trixie
