ABOUT THE OWNER
Corien Siepelinga (pronounced ko-rēnˈ sē-pa-lingˈ-a) emigrated from the Netherlands to Canada when she was three years old. She grew up in Canada, met her husband John and had her two children there and later moved to Victoria Texas with his work with DuPont.
While in Texas with two young children and no work visa, she taught herself to draw with the help of books from the local library. After 2 years in Victoria TX and 3 years in Orange, TX the Siepelinga family moved to Avondale Pennsylvania. After moving to Avondale in 2005 Corien returned to her work as an ICU nurse but continued with her drawing. She studied oil painting with Neil Carlin on a part-time basis and later took classes in abstract painting with Susan Melrath and additional classes online with Nicholas Wilton.
In 2018 with her children leaving for college and her husband traveling more frequently with work she was looking to do something different. The opportunity to purchase an art gallery business in downtown Kennett Square suddenly presented itself and she took it. She left nursing and now curates exhibits at the gallery and teaches art classes to children. She has been thrilled with this opportunity and the chance to be involved with the local community.
