Corina Kiefert Chester is a multimedia artist who works best in a creative chaos. She moves from one stage of printmaking to the next incorporating drawing, mixed media and collage.
The process is exciting since the final piece seems to create itself.
Gelatin plate monotype printing is the dominant medium she is exploring at this time but she also works in gouache, oil, oil stick, graphite and encaustic. She is a graduate of OCAD (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 juried shows and is also an educator and facilitator of numerous workshops.
Corina 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. She strives to evoke the magical solitude of this tranquil environment and 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 almost 30 years.
