“The human figure, in all its infinite beauty of rhythm, expressiveness, anatomical structure and design, is inexorably infused wit the most complex of features: the individual soul.” - Kamille Corry
Realist painter Kamille Corry’s art education and apprenticeship began in Florence, Italy, where she pursued etching studies at Il Bisonte and drawing and painting at Studio Cecil-Graves.
Thereafter, Ms. Corry also trained extensively with noted painter D. Jeffrey Mims in Florence and North Carolina.
Corry’s paintings reflect her classical training and fine craftsmanship, rendering the figure in a modern, provocative light.
