Corina Kiefert Chester is a multimedia artist who is inspired by the quiet and peaceful beauty of the rural landscape that surrounds her log home and by the colours and textures of her many gardens.
Gelatin plate monotype printmaking is the dominant medium she is exploring at this time but she also creates using oil, oil stick, gouache, graphite and encaustic. The printmaking process is exciting and “happy accidents” can take the work in an unexpected direction. Moving from one stage to the next, drawing, mixed media and collage are incorporated as the final piece seems to create itself.
Corina is a graduate of OCADU (Illustration and Design) and University of Guelph (major in Fine Art) and both these influences can be seen in her work. She exhibits at local galleries and juried shows and is also an educator/facilitator of numerous workshops.
Corina strives to evoke the magical solitude of her tranquil environment and to convey the importance of maintaining our connection to nature. Every day brings renewed inspiration and immense gratitude to be able to express this beauty. Corina, her husband Paul and Macie the cocker spaniel, reside in the rolling countryside east of Peterborough Ontario, Canada, their home for 30 years.
