Meet corina

Corina Spanu is a Portland, ME based artist with Romanian roots. Her first drawing was a traced brass key at the ripe age of 2, which shocked her godmother. Soon traced cartoons became quick sketches of friends and family. 

Corina received formal training at the University of Virginia, while completing a chemistry major and a minor in fine art.


Now, she splits her time between ensuring excellent patient care at one of Maine's healthcare systems by day and capturing Maine's natural beauty, people and companions by night and weekends.

Monhegan Island in Maine has recently inspired a new line of work with special focus on coastal homes and scapes. Stay tuned for more work to come!



Media: Corina loves all media, but favors quick graphite and pen sketches when in class, at lunch and in busy airports. She masters acrylics especially when it comes to Christmas ornaments, and has recently given oil portraits another chance. Check out some of the other artwork featuring alcohol based markers and some of the digital portraits like the one on the left!
