CORINA BAKKE BIOGRAPHY
Corina Bakke is a multi-faceted entrepreneurial artist – a licensed artist for the Frank Sinatra estate, a featured painter for the Legacy Art Series at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, an Emmy and ABC Network Alpha Award-winning designer, pop and celebrity artist. Corina has become highly respected for her artistic achievements as her clients have seen how her artistic talents enhance their image.
Among the first athlete to be captured by Corina’s talents with charcoal was Dennis Rodman. Her popularity reached new limits when she became licensed by the Frank Sinatra Estate, following Frank Sinatra’s death, to create three different portraits, which are titled The Frank Sinatra Tribute Series. She had exciting showings in the year 2000 in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, which featured her Frank Sinatra Tribute Series.
The creation of the MVP (Most Valuable Portrait) Series began with a special exhibit in Lake Tahoe at the American Century Golf Tournament, where Corina featured athletes John Elway, Dan Marino and Mario Lemieux. In the first quarter of 2002, Corina received high recognition when she appeared on the cover of the International Art Magazine, “Art Expressions.”
Next, she was selected to be one of the featured artists for the Legacy Art Series at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. The night before the closing ceremonies, Corina unveiled her Legacy painting of her hero to Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson and to the City of Salt Lake. The piece commemorating the 2002 Games will remain in Salt Lake for years to come. Corina also painted many other Olympic MVP’s, including former Olympians Franz Weber, Bonnie Blair, Dan Jansen, Bode Miller, Rosey Fletcher as well as Paralympics spokesman Chris Waddell.
In 2002, Corina’s subjects included Moya Lear, (the wife of Lear Jet Pioneer, Bill Lear), Ron and Renae Ryan of Ryan International Airlines, and the celebrities from the Reno Film Festival (Gary Busey, Piper Laurie, Marlee Matlin and Elliot Gould).
In addition to her many portraits of highly acclaimed subjects, Corina was asked to join forces with endangered species spokesperson, Timothy Treadwell, of Grizzly People. She created a series that helped benefit harp seals and endangered grizzly bears, prior to Timothy Treadwell’s passing.
The endangered species project captured the eyes of many unique musicians and DJ's worldwide, which led to her being asked to create a series of the world’s top DJ's that was shown in one of New York’s ARC’s in late 2003.
In September 2007, Corina exhibited in the New York Independent Film and Video Festival in Los Angeles where she painted George Clooney, Elton John, and Johnny Depp.
In 2012, Corina was the creative force behind NConcert4Autism® and Harmony and Hoops, charity event. As Production Designer, her work included the creation of the graphics package, marketing and PR materials, artistic interpretation of the design concept, the promotions video loop, and the logo design.
Corina has currently licensed her images out to several different companies for canvases and other products for sale in box stores and online. She has custom originals available for sale online and upon request. And her work is also available for philanthropic events upon request.
