Biography:E. M. Corsa is passionate about art and nature, the combination giving birth to vivid watercolors portraying wild and domestic animals and the natural world. She paints what she knows best, and the appeal of her work stems from a keen eye for accuracy and detail, balanced composition and occasionally a wry sense of humor. Additional pencil and collage work, sometimes combined with hand stitching and textiles, creates another dimension pulling the viewer closer to the subject.
From a young age, Corsa has been enthralled with the natural world, stemming from her parents respect and love of nature. This, along with an insatiable need to learn all she can about her subjects, has led to the artist developing a recognizable style uniquely her own.
Keeping sketch journals where daily happenings are recorded for future use in a painting is an important part of the creative process for her. The majority of these drawings are done on location producing a freshness that is rarely found in a finished piece. Working on site also gives Corsa a personal feel for the subject that can’t be experienced by working from a photograph. Many of Elizabeth’s paintings also have hidden references to personal memories and events in her life.
She paints first for her own pleasure then as a way to share her love of nature. “Nothing pleases me more than to see someone study my work and perhaps want to learn more about the subject,” says the artist. “It’s my way of inviting the viewer into my world to appreciate what nature offers us everyday. Just to open your eyes and see the beauty right outside your door.” Favorite subjects include birds, insects, and other small creatures that cross her path, or make their home at The Crooked Little House.
Elizabeth Corsa has been the recipient of numerous awards, and her paintings have produced a loyal following in private and corporate collections. Several of her paintings have been used as illustrations in children’s books (“Lady Bug” & “Sand Pile”), as well creating a line of greeting cards. Her work can be found at several galleries and locations along the east coast.
