Cori Dyson is an accomplished artist who has found her true passion in painting late in life. She pursued a medical career in psychiatry. Growing up in the tranquil and lush surroundings of rural Southern Arkansas, she developed a profound appreciation for nature. After completing her medical studies and residency, she discovered painting as a cathartic outlet for her creativity. Encouraged by activity therapists, she explored traditional techniques through the guidance of acclaimed artist Stefan Baumann, attending various workshops, conventions, and expos to hone her skills. Over time, she was juried into exhibitions and accepted into the prestigious Oil Painters of America (OPA). Despite her busy schedule, she aspires to devote more time to painting, pursuing her artistic dreams beyond her psychiatric practice.
