    “I’m not sure that it’s because I’m such a prolific artist; maybe it’s because I’ve been making things for about 40 years and I start a lot of new projects,” Korkos said.
    The work is mostly representational rather than abstract and mostly inspired by natural forms — birds, leaves and trees. She says that almost everything else is inspired by words and thoughts about life.
