Corey is the full time Art Teacher for all grades. He began at WDS in 2021 as the 1st Grade Teaching Assistant and part-time Art Teacher.
Corey’s education and career have been centered on art, and teaching is his passion. After earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, opportunities directed him to the art world in New York City.
He spent 15 years working at Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Greene Naftali Gallery with focuses in art handling, storage, transportation, installation, operations, management, and as a registrar. As a working artist, painting and drawing have been his main focus and are his strongest areas. He currently makes small abstract drawings in pen and ink which are digitally scanned for reproduction on textiles. You can see them on his website.
Corey lives in Boiceville with his wife, who is a therapist, and daughter, Sabine, who attends WDS.
