About the Artist

Korin Chapman

 

 

Born and raised in San Diego, California; Korin creates her work at her home and studio in Bird Rock, La Jolla. For the past five years she has used a mixed media approach to her work, taking inspiration from the coastline in her own backyard and recreating the awe striking views of the different seascapes that she both finds herself in and hopes to visit and experience for herself.
During the 2020 shutdown, Korin continued to experiment with new materials and fell in love with an ancient process of encaustics. This process of layering colored wax and oil paint while fusing with fire will be a main focus for future works and series.
