UArts has further instilled my eagerness to continually learn and experiment. Now, I am fortunate to work for a company, Anthropologie, that allows me to further advance my understanding of aesthetics and material manipulation to such a degree that I’m able to apply what I’ve discovered at work to my own studio practice and vice versa.
Corinne Sandkuhler, BFA '15 (Sculpture) is a multidisciplinary artist with experience in millworking and display art. She currently works for Anthropologie/URBN Inc. where she designs and creates custom art installations and fixtures for retail display. Whether it be for professional or personal pursuits, her art recontextualizes and celebrates the mediums she uses. Corinne often works with recycled materials in unconventional ways such as jewelry created from discarded magazines, an 8’x10’ cardboard house or a quilt made entirely of envelopes.
In contrast to the creative focus of her display work, her professional career has also involved more mathematical and mechanical aspects of creating. Her previous experience as a cabinetmaker and CNC router programmer serves as a testament to the adaptability and versatility of skills that come to fruition when pursuing a career as an artist.
Aside from her passion for creating, she can be found gardening, listening to bluegrass, folk, rock or exploring the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland where her family resides.
