Cortney is an abstract painter and her passion is creating coastal-inspired art. Her studio is based in Columbus, Ohio. Cortney’s focus is to create elegant and colorful paintings and prints that highlight the beautiful homes in which they are displayed.
She grew up in Central Florida where she gained her love of beaches, seaside communities and marine life. Even though she has transplanted to the Midwest, her love of the coast has continued.
Her greatest joy with running her art business is helping people complete their rooms and feel at home in their space. Helping with this need is a dream for Cortney since it combines her artistic talents with her love for assisting others. Many of her customers have said the addition of her art took their room from unfinished and stressful to polished and lovely.
Though she concentrated on sculpture and ceramics in college while earning her degree in Fine Arts, a mural project with the Columbus Zoo ignited her passion for acrylic painting. It was from this mural project that she began experimenting with acrylic paint on canvas. Cortney began selling her abstract paintings and prints in 2013. She has won numerous awards for her artwork and is featured in collections both nationally and internationally.
