Korinne Carpino, Alcohol Ink Artist
Alcohol Ink Artist and Instructor
Hi, I’m Korinne Carpino, an artist who loves hearing that her work is proudly given as gifts, hung in prominent spots in home or offices, and helping its owners with a new appreciation for the ordinary aspects of life which would otherwise be taken for granted.
I paint intuitively, getting lost with my music and my art supplies. I work with just a few colors, and time passes without notice. The final composition is often a surprise.
I’m 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.
There is a whimsical side to my art, too. My “Caity’s Girl” series, for example, includes inspirational messages for women. Caity’s big, sparkly eyes, love of flora and fauna, overwhelming good nature and kind heart are depicted in these creations – all a tribute to a remarkable young woman who serves as a reminder to live life fully, every day.
I love creating unique pieces that speak to their owners, whether with alcohol ink, acrylic paint, encaustic wax, pebeo or resin.
I also love to share what I know about art – join us for a class!
