Artist Corrina Crazie Espinosa finds her inner unicorn in all the strangest places

The trees talk to Denver artist Corrina Espinosa, whose work often starts with a piece of wood; a carver with a deep soul, she's made art out of stumps and branches, and whole trees shaded her Metro State College of Denver senior thesis exhibition, Hybrid Zoetic. The finished pieces sometimes seem like strange and twisted metaphors for the vagaries of life and the slow growth that comes with change. But at other times, they're just plain whimsical.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
