This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist, whose studio is in Seattle, Washington:

Corina Brown grew up sketching figures and animals from early childhood. During her developmental years in Junior High and High School she began taking classes in Art and Photography and won several artist competitions at a young age. She attended Western Washington University, in Bellingham Washington, and started her formal training in Art and Graphic Design. Not knowing if she could make a living as a fine artist, Corina received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Advertising and Graphic Design in December of 1990. With her art classes at College she received a 4.0 GPA the last quarter of her schooling, graduating on the DEAN's List for 1990. Fresh out of College, Corina went to work for the Seattle Fox Television Station in Graphic Design and On-Air Graphics.

During her career working in Broadcast, Brown created a series of portraits of Athletes. She felt she had accomplished a lot but did not feel completely satisfied. A turning point came in her personal life in 1997, when her house accidentally burned down, taking with it all of her belongings. This circumstance created a natural pivotal point in her life, and she quit her job with Fox in 1997.

Coming from a family oriented to business, she decided there was enough interest in her work to start her own company where she could go out on her own to create, in charcoal, portraits of athletes. Her subjects include Warren Moon, Detlef Shrempf, Ricky Watters. and Dennis Rodman. After the death of singer Frank Sinatra
Corina was officially sanctioned by the Frank Sinatra Estate to create three different charcoal portraits titled "The Frank Sinatra Tribute Series". She had exhibitions in the year 2000 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Los Angeles, California, which featured her "Frank Sinatra Series".

The creation of her MVP (Most Valuable Portrait) Series began with a special exhibit in Lake Tahoe, CA, at the American Century Golf Tournament. Brown's featured athletes include John Elway, Dan Marino, and Mario Lemieux.

In the first quarter of 2002 Corina Brown's work appeared on the cover of the International Art Magazine, "Art Expressions." That same year she was one of the featured Artists for the "Legacy Art Series" of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City. To commemorate the 2002 games, Brown unveiled her painting of Apolo Anton Ohno, the night before closing ceremonies February 23rd, to the mayor of Salt Lake- Mayor Rocky Anderson, and to the City of Salt Lake. Proceeds from that evenings sales and post sales benefitted the 2002 Paralympic Games. Her paintings of many other Olympic MVP's includes former Olympians Franz Weber, Bonnie Blair , Dan Jansen, Bode Miller, Rosey Fletcher and Apolo Anton Ohno as well as Paralympic spokesman Chris Waddell.

The 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah marked Brown's cross-over period from her black and white portraits to vibrant color in multi-mediums. In 2002, her subjects included Moya Lear, ( the wife of the Lear Jet Pioneer, Bill Lear), Ron Ryan of Ryan International Airlines and his wife Renae, and the celebrities from the Reno Film Festival (Gary Busey, Piper Laurie, Marlee Matlin and Elliot Gould.) In addition to her many portraits of notable subjects, Corina was asked to join forces with endangered species spokes person, Timothy Treadwell of Grizzly People. In this series she created a series that helped benefit the Harp Seal, and endangered Grizzly Bears.

While working on the above commissioned images she started her series of nudes, and colorful scenic shots, which came to the attention of some musicians and disc jockeys, and which led to a series depicting well known "dj's". These portraits were exhibited in the following cities in 2003: New York, Ibiza-Spain, London-England, Paris-France and Venice-Italy.

Corina Brown likes to explore new mediums including sculpture. From plastic to steel in her new sculptures as well as her charcoal portraits and colorful acrylic paintings, she has depicted a range of subjects including a variety of celebrity portraits and endangered species.
