My name is Cori Rina and I am a creative human being

Born in Romania, and now making my home in Kinna, Sweden, the arts—including music, painting, and writing—are where my attention is currently focused. It took me a while to realise that I am not meant to be stereotyped, but rather am an individual whose thoughts and experiences are uniquely her own.

For me, writing has always been a therapeutic outlet for expressing my innermost thoughts and emotions, and it has been a way to cope with life since I was a child.

Although I had always been a sketcher, I didn’t start painting until much later in life.

I didn’t give myself permission to believe I could do it until  I’d had some life lessons. It took a long time for me to fully comprehend the power that creativity has and for me to start releasing it within myself.

My creations are packed with contradictory ideas, feelings, and states of mind because I try to stay true to myself.

When it came to singing, I always knew it is a tool to let go of stress and feel a surge of renewed vitality, but even though singing professionally had been a dream since I was a baby, I had run from it.

It took me a very long time to realise that it was entirely up to me to decide whether or not I would allow myself to get out of my comfort zone and whether or not I would embrace the creative energy that was already within me.

Today I feel completely free to let my imagination go wild in whichever direction it pleases.
