Cori Lee Marvin watercolours

Cori Lee Marvin is an artist living in Port Hope, Ontario, and recently joined us here at 100 Mile Finds. Her non-traditional approach to watercolour combines a flowing and loose medium with a precise and detailed style. Crisp, clean images and deep, saturated colours give her painting amazing clarity and depth. In many of her pieces, highly realistic subjects emerge in unusual surroundings and this juxtaposition creates intriguing visual stories. Cori Lee's love of nature and the pull toward still-life have resulted in an unexpected yet compelling pairing.
One of my favourites is Fellow Yellow, it looks like this little bird has found his soulmate. And my son likes Crow Wants a Pickle - I think he can imagine this scene at the cottage.
Cori Lee Marvin was recently picked to showcase her work in the Artist Project Toronto 2012.
