Artist Statement

Botanical artist and naturalist Corinne Lapin-Cohen captures the beauty and grace of a plant at a particular moment. Painting with the precision and clarity of a scientist and the heart and vision of an artist, her work is informative while being artistically pleasing. Her meticulous attention to detail draws the viewer into each painting, and the sensuous watercolors reflect her unusual sensitivity to nature. To Corinne, botanical art is about precision and clarity- but ultimately about life. She has been an instructor of botanical art at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, and at the Lasdon Arboretum in Katonah, where she was the director of the botanical art program, and at Lehman College. Currently she teaches exclusively at StoneHouse Studio in Katonah, New York. Announcing a solo exhibit of over 60 watercolors and metalpointe drawings from May 23-Sept 6, 2010 at The Gallery in the Park, Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Cross River, NY. Opening Reception May 23 2-4pm
