Corno's symbiotic relationship with music makes her presence here most fitting. Music has always provided a bubble within which she immerses herself during the creative process. It accounts for the rhythm in her larger than life paintings and the upbeat tempo of her creations.

Corno's art is passionate, edgy and urban. The raw energy of New York City where she has been thriving for the past 18 years pulsates vibrantly in her canvases. Her subject matter is the human body built on contrasts, dichotomies, and unresolved contradictions. Her signature style is instantly recognizable and flamboyant. She combines vivid colors, intense textures, intricate figurative details and explosive gestural movements in a fusion of post-pop and new expressionism.

Corno's story is inspiring. After 30 years of relentless dedication to her art, she is in a league of her own and is represented around the world in prestigious galleries in New York, Paris, London, Monaco, Venice, Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul and Dubai. In the province of Quebec she is exclusively represented by AKA Gallery. She has had one important international exhibition after another. Her paintings can be found in major private, public and museum collections around the world.
