BC Arts series: Corinne Orazietti

Island Spirit Artworks, paintings by Corinne Orazietti
“I paint from nature because it is what inspires me. I find peace in the outdoors and feel a spiritual connection when surrounded by trees, flowers, rocks, beautiful big skies… I have a favourite t-shirt which reads, “The sounds of oceans soothe my soul.” The sight of oceans, skies, and forests soothes my soul also. So this is what I paint. I hope others feel some of these emotions when looking at my artwork.
I like to use somewhat subdued, earthy colours in my paintings. My style is fairly uncomplicated. I prefer to paint simply an impression of what I see and to edit unnecessary details. For me, this creates a painting with more emotional impact.”
Corinne Orazietti up in the Vancouver area. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from S.F.U. and a teaching degree at U.B.C., she lived in Banff, AB for seven years. She loved living in a National Park (the beauty of the area is amazing), but missed her family and the more moderate climate of the West Coast. She left the mountains and moved to another natural setting in Sooke, B.C. on Vancouver Island.
This exhibition is the latest in our BC Arts Series.
