CortneyNorth's Shop Announcement

It is a great joy to share the art I create with you! Whether I'm painting, sculpting, writing or cooking, I always seem to be creating something new. I focus on making art that is cheerful, welcoming and fun. Thank you for visiting my little shop!


Cortney earned her Bachelors of Fine Art and Education in 2007. Her recent body of work focuses on abstract color arrangements with linear movement and a bent towards impressionistic style. North is a full-time artist who has been featured in collections both nationally and internationally and currently has a studio in Columbus, Ohio.


"My appreciation for abstract paintings and sculptures has been around since I can remember. There is something so instinctual for me about abstract art. You are taking away the literal and expected to assess the art with your feelings instead of just your eyes. It's why I love experimenting with new color combinations, textures and lines.

Nature plays the biggest role right now in my art. It's often that I find myself out in nature listening to the birds chirping and the leaves rustling in the wind that a design for a painting will come into my mind. It's as though a snapshot of the moment is captured inside of me and as I paint, I relate back to the moment, the smells in the air, the sounds whistling by, the layers of hues in the scene, to guide my colors and brushstrokes. It's all wrapped up and preserved until I can imitate it on the canvas in front of me."
