Presently Cornelia works from Pringle bay, sharing a home studio with fellow artist Pieter Robbetze. She produces sculptures mostly in painted resin and wood, but also appropriates other traditional sculpting media such as steel and bronze. Her work shows an appreciation of realism and the natural world. Animals and humans are often naturally depicted and combined in a quirky fashion.
