Corrigan‘s enjoyment for drawing is partially because of the comfort of sitting down and completing the process of starting and finishing a piece, and also because she loves creating funny, creepy, and weird drawings. Credit: Lillian Schrafft for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online.
Corrigan describes that her attraction to surrealism is because “there’s so much more information to absorb from something that’s real, but not quite right, than from an absolute realism piece.”  Credit: Lillian Schrafft for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online.

All of Corrigan’s art pieces are drawings.  She usually uses pencil for an outline, and a black pen and Sharpie to finish the piece.  Credit: Lillian Schrafft for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online.
