Corrie Scott, Barbados Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement Corrie, self taught, has photographed , and also scribbled and painted on everything she could find since childhood. Her first camera, a Brownie, captured her sisters, whom she used to dress up and pose them for modelling for the camera. Her special love of the Caribbean is apparent in her photography and her art.
In her daily travels, and also world travels, Corrie always has a camera close to hand to capture those elusive human moments and those ' around the corner' views that delight. The back light of a flower, a turtle popping its head up above water, a lonely worker in the fields, a huddle of ladies gossiping under and umbrella, the balletic movements of the fishermen as they use their nets. So much that surrounds us.
Also an artist, her exercise books were always full of doodles in the margins, and she was always in trouble for it with her teachers, who felt she was not concentrating on her studies. Working and experimenting in all mediums, she does not restrict herself in subject matter, going from clean representational watercolours to large abstract pieces in acrylics and mixed media.
Her photography and art may be found at Tides Gallery at The Tides Restaurant in Holetown , St James, The Barbados Arts Council Gallery at Pelican Village in Bridgetown, or she may be contacted at her studio ( by appointment please as she may be out painting or photographing) on the South Coast in a charming National Trust recognised cottage.
