Biography of Ursula Corleis

Ursula Corleis was born in Buxtehude, Germany, in 1944.
She studied German literature, art and visual communications, receiving diplomas from both Hamburg's University and Art Academy. She taught high school for twelve years.

In the early 'eighties, she and her husband Herbert Hoffmann bought an abandoned farm in Radda in Chianti and moved to Italy.
Her artistic creativity changed entirely in this new environment.

In the early 'nineties she began sculpting in stone and alabaster, these media offering her new means for self expression. Her approach to painting changed once again and continues to do so.

Over the last forty years she has had various personal exhibitions in Italy and Germany.
Her works have been acquired by public and private collections in Europe, North America, Canada and Australia.
