Introduction A narrative artist and prolific print maker she creates intriguing images built up using collage, pencil, paint and ink producing work using a remarkable unity of composition due to a skill in counterpoising moving and motionless figures which is counterbalanced by the absence of all perspective, the fondness for symmetry and lack of light and shade. Landscape, trees and rocks, flowering shrubs and flowers depicted with subtle colour and seductive patterning, There is the description of the work, as paper drawings turn into paintings, ceramics, textiles and book works. But something else really emerges the more it is seen - the energy and playfulness, the inventive theatre of imagination. Some marks have a very raw quality like a hastily drawn directions map, trying to find something, the marks hovering between description and abstract expressions. Cornelia's work references stories, myths and literature and focuses on personal reminiscence, the complexities of human relationships , emotion and memories.
