From back as far as I can remember, I've had a love for art. I could spend hours with any kind of medium... pottery, pencils, pastels, paints... whatever I could get my hands on to create something new and wonderful. My path has been one long, winding road that has brought me my deepest sorrows and greatest joys. It has brought me back here, to one of my greatest passions, where I'm able to pursue something that I love while helping others in the process.
I chose the name Inspired By U because I want my customers to play a part in the end product. I love to sit down with my clients to capture their vision, and then help to bring that vision to life. Seeing the look on someone’s face when I restore an old piece that had sentimental value to them is priceless. Taking someones cabinets and transforming them into the kitchen they've always dreamed of fills me up. I get just as excited as my customers to see the transformation take place! I love being able to use the gifts I’ve been given to bring great joy to others.
In addition to custom work, my mom and I have a small booth space at the Antique Marketplace of Lemoyne. My mom is a floral artist and we work so well together! It has been a great experience to work alongside her to combine our talents. We have a little of everything including furniture, home decor, floral arrangements, and great gifts. If you’re ever in Lemoyne, be sure to stop by Booth #535.
My definition of success is how many others can I help become successful. In addition to all the wonderful doors that have been opened with my painting business, I've helped to create an online University for Cabinet Painters. This has been my newest venture, and I love helping to build others and add value to them.
I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that I am right where God wants me. I’ll continue to allow Him to lead and give him the Glory every step of the way.
"Corrie has an amazing talent!! She listened to what colors and theme for our nursery I wanted and turned the room from the least favorite room in our house to our favorite! She took ordinary inexpensive items we had and turned them into masterpieces!! I would recommend her work to anyone!" ~Megan Wytovich
