Corrinne Detain

Corinne studied art, design, sculpture and creative textiles in Bristol, Falmouth College of Arts, Cornwall College and Plymouth University, and she is currently living and working in Cornwall at Krowji studios, Redruth.

Corinne is a mixed media artist primarily working with paint / collage / print / stitch to create emotional responses to personal experiences, usually semi abstract landscapes and experimental textile sample pieces. She is interested in art as therapy and using art as a means of intuitively working through unconscious transitional emotional states of being. As such she is currently studying therapeutic counselling diploma and has a keen interest in the positive effects art has on mental health and wellbeing. 

Previously she sold work at The New Craftsman, St Ives, participated in a collaborative project with Eden planting the sculpture ‘The Seed’ in 2007, regularly taking part in Cornwall Open Studios, and working on mindful creative workshops whilst exhibiting annually.
