Bio : Corinne Young
Corinne is an award-winning oil painter based in North Devon. She graduated from Plymouth University in 2014 with a degree in fine art. In 2016 she co-founded art gallery, studio and specialist art printers Jackson & Young in Barnstaple.
Corinne has exhibited artwork across the UK and in Saudi Arabia, where she spent a lot of time throughout her early life. In 2020, she won the prestigious Holly Bush Emerging Women Artists Award in Hampstead, and more recently she has been selected to exhibit in the Society of Women Artists exhibition in Mall Galleries.
The primary theme of Corinne's oil paintings is the exploration of the female form via portraiture, which she portrays through a distinctive, contemporary realism style. Her current series of figurative open water swimmers hones in on this theme and is considered her most exposed and innovative body of work to date.
