Cory Benhatzel was born and raised in the town of Amherst, New York. At eighteen she moved to Los Angeles where she earned her Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from Otis College of Art & Design. Cory has since returned to New York where she currently resides with her husband and daughter-cat, Moogle. Cory Benhatzel’s paintings are inspired by the occult, natural history and Norse Paganism. The painstakingly created acrylic works deal with themes of the doppelganger, divination, victory, protection, the dance between life and death, triumph, and love.
