Look Within and see the world around you
Established artist and seventh generation Vermonter, Corliss Blakely painted still lifes and Vermont landscapes in a classically realist style until last year. She received her formal art training in Boston while she studied at the Vesper George Art School and classes at The Museum School Of Fine Art.
Corliss is an internationally recognized artist for her work in several mediums, including watercolor, oil, and egg tempera. Her paintings hang in collections worldwide.
Last Year, while painting at her studio she glanced up at a small painting that was stapled to the wall that she had created in 1974. It was a tempera of the inside of a green pepper, at that moment she decided to return to the past and start a new future. This is how "The Forgotten Seeds Look Within" series began.
Seeds are our life we have to protect them!
When she is not in her Studio, Corliss travels to Nicaragua to collect tropical fruits and seeds. Vermont is a beautful place to live, however, in the deep of winter it's wonderful to enjoy the lush green in Central America.
Corliss was a visiting artist at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria,Va. this Summer
