Corynn is a full-time artist and mom of three. Having given up painting for over a decade to raise her family, her reinvigorated practice merges the disparate roles of mother and artist through the centring of child development and the labour of caregiving.

Her vivid renderings record intimate moments of transition and development, capturing children when they are most honest and without reserve. The work is painted allaprima, welcoming the viewer to explore the material processes of oil paint. The result is a contrast that plays between the stillness of the image and the dynamic movements inherent in the physical act of painting.

Corynn earned her BFA in the Drawing and Painting program at OCADU, where she received the Akin Career Launcher Award. Her work has been featured on Breakfast Television, CP24, CBC radio and She Does the City. She works out of the Akin Studios in Toronto and her work can be found in private collections in the UK, the US, Australia, France and Canada.
