The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Sierra Series is proud to present, How Art Found Me: A Healing Journey, a discussion with acclaimed Canadian portrait sculptor, painter, and forensic artist, Christian Corbet.

Corbet's big break came with a portrait he created of the late HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Since then, his high profile commissions include, the late HRH The Prince Philip, world-renowned activist and anthropologist, Jane Goodall, writer, Margaret Atwood as well as a forensic reconstruction of King Richard the Bruce.

His artwork reflects a drive for constant self-renewal and by an awareness of his own mortality which is often reflected in his portraiture. His ceramic work is largely figurative expressing the human body and condition, chiefly sexuality, and sensuality and often with the message of self-exploration and non-binary subjects.

Corbet's works have been collected by over 100 art galleries, museums and institutions worldwide. He is cited in numerous publications worldwide. He has been granted coat of arms and badge from the Canadian Government, he was awarded the Diamond Jubilee Medal and has had first ever titles granted from government and private institutions. He's an art historian, lecturer, mentor and patron.
