From prize-winning student at the Byam Shaw School of Art to mainstay of the New English Art Club, Corsellis is well respected among her peers and has enjoyed a glittering and far-flung career. She has lived in Spain, Hong Kong, Canada and Malaysia, but more recent subjects emanate from travels closer to home; in London, Cornwall, her home in West Wales, in Venice and Florence and with family and friends in the South of France.
Corsellis’ constant fascination with the differing qualities of light found in different parts of the world, or just through the course of a day, brings her into a direct line of descent from the impressionist-influenced artists who founded the New English Art Club, in which she is now a key-player.
