People are the subjects of my work, with a focus on women and the blurring and shifting boundaries between the private and public experience. My inspiration is 

drawn from daily encounters and observations such as social gatherings, images 

and snippets on social media. All these influences generate ideas for themes that I can build upon, "dress-up" and weave into my work. - Corinna Button
