Corrine Yonce

Painter, community organizer, radio-maker and cross country cyclist, Corrine Yonce specializes in placed-based, story centered paintings and installations. She stepped into visual storytelling as part of her two years of AmeriCorps service in which she created the project Voices of Home, a powerful experience where she built relationships with low-income resident leaders through portraiture and oral storytelling. Corrine has received support from the Burlington City Arts Community Arts Fund (twice), Vermont Arts Council, the Vermont Community Fund, and Fair Housing Vermont. Her painting style has been heavily influenced by her recent participation in the New York Studio School summer marathon session.

Voices of Home pairs the audio stories of individuals who live in affordable housing with painted portraits. The results are interactive art shows displayed in community spaces in which the conversation is driven by our most vulnerable people.
