Sandra Corpora OPA


                    "My paintings attempt to capture the essence of a place and time and the beauty I see around me. The way the light falls to create a pattern of values and colors is often the thing that inspires. It can be a person’s face, objects in a still life or the landscape softened by atmosphere, inspiration is everywhere."

          From an early age, Sandra Corpora demonstrated exceptional ability at drawing and painting. She has a BFA in Painting from Kutztown University, receiving the prize for top fine art graduate. Sandra has studied in workshops with Nelson Shanks, John Osborne, T.M. Nicolas, Kenn Backhaus and Scott Jennings. She paints primarily from life in the studio and outdoors on location. She is inspired to constantly improve her skills as a painter in all subjects, figurative, still life and landscape. Sandra Corpora is a signature member of Oil Painters of America where she won an Award of  Excellence. She’s also a member of the American Impressionist Society, American Women Artists, and the Portrait Painters of America where she was a finalist in the Members Competition. She also teaches and conducts workshops. Her work is in private and public collections in Italy, Canada, Norway, and the US. She is represented by Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia.
