Corre Alice


Before she left for the East Coast at the tender age of eighteen with her hippie partner in the camperized Ford pickup, teepee poles strapped to the roof on her search for the meaning of life, she had grown up mainly in Nanaimo B.C. where her oldest son was born. She had wanted a home birth but the boat she was living on just off of New Castle Island had sunk. “More guts than brains” some would say. No regrets.

She always knew she’d be an artist. Even during the day-job years working at the Pender Island Recycling Depot, doing construction and machining, she had painted. Known fact: she’s never had a job that required clean clothes.

Her first chance to go to formal art school was in Durham at the University of New Hampshire. That lasted about two days, oh my, pregnant again! Not to mention living in the country illegally.

Finally a decade and a half later, after raising her three sons and building a strawbale house on South Pender she enrolled in school.  As a mature painter, she is still risking, pushing the edges and striving for that fresh and alive work of art that feeds her soul.
