Corella “Corie” Fairchild Pierson is a Houston based artist, educator, and event producer. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she has called Texas home for over a decade. Corie holds a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in graphic design from the University of Houston Clear Lake where she graduated with honors in 2016. Corie's collaborative murals with KP can be seen at such places as the Woodlands Children’s Museum, Otto’s restaurant in the underground of downtown Houston, and Clean Camp yoga studio in Tomball.
A strong believer that experiencing art should be accessible and free or affordable for all, Corie has performed live visual art at events like Float Fest, the Kerrville Chalk Festival, Houston Via Colori (where she and KP first met), the Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival, and MidtownHOU Chalk on the Block. Corie has also shown her fine art in group shows at accessible galleries like the Hardy & Nance Studios, Texas Art Asylum, Samara Gallery, and Kerr Arts & Cultural Center.
A lover of nostalgia and mixed media, Corie’s original fine art often includes old book pages or maps, acrylic paint, and inked mandalas and trees on wood canvas in a fashion reminiscent of art nouveau. She often takes commissions of the portraits of patron’s loved ones, painted in acrylic or oil with organically blended backgrounds.
