The Fairmont Banff Hotel in partnership with Mountain Galleries presents the Artist in Residence program. Following in the footsteps of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s vision in the early 1900’s that saw the railway use artwork to tell the story of the hotel and its’ destination to potential travelers around the globe, Corrinne has been chosen by Mountain Galleries to live and paint in the hotel for two weeks. She will be working in the 'Art Room at the Castle' giving guests the opportunity to watch the art come to life from the first stroke of the brush. The ‘Artist in Residence’ program gives hotel guests the chance to become inspired artists themselves.
The Artist in Residence at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is very special. This trip will be my 5th time as the AIR. Along with dozens of Farmers Market Demos during the summer months outside Mountain Galleries (beside Portabello) the hotel, the warmth of the employees and charm of the gallery staff is immeasurable! It feels like coming home and I look forward to my trips here. As a professional artist, I feel truly blessed to be able to share my love of the West Coast with so many.
For several years, I planned and plotted a trip to Haida Gwaii. So many artists and friends have made this journey & I have yet to meet one disappointed traveler! Well, finally my plans are set and I will be carving out my own adventure here. Painting, sketching, hiking, photographing and exploring on land and ocean my goal is to immerse myself in the landscape. The spills of this trip will be a new series of work and an upcoming solo exhibition in Victoria at Madrona Gallery.

July 2019 Along the Alaskan Coastline
Azamara Cruises in partnership with Art Waves are host to an extensive art experience and will allow me to become fully immersed with art and share this with the guests.
Traveling along the West Coast is a passion. There is an unexplained connection I have to this landscape and my best response is to interpret it in paint. I have journeyed along the coastlines of the Mexican Baja, California, Oregon, Washington, B.C. & Alaska and I always find so much inspiration and material from which to create new works. For an entire month, I will travel along the BC/Alaskan Coast and explore so many new parts that I have not yet seen. The pristine beauty and untouched wilderness simply makes me smile and feel such happiness inside - this is what I paint, the experience of that feeling.
