About the Instructor:
Cori Jaye Elston studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Ontario and has a Graphic Design Diploma from Red River College. A selection of Cori's vibrant and dynamic art was featured in the Community Gallery at The Pavilion in the Summer 2018. "My chosen subject matter surrounds Love, Power, and Spirituality. I often paint romantic scenes, expressing feelings of connection and respect. It is also common for me to paint animals which hold particularly powerful spiritual meanings, such as lions or elephants that signify special strengths. My paintings are an expression of my yearning to share love and power in this reality and often reflect my connection to the non physical world."
