Born Linda Tee Cutchin, November 3, 1943, in St. Petersburg, Florida, Tee A. Corinne was educated at Newcomb College, Tulane University; St. Petersburg Junior College (A.A. 1964); the University of South Florida (B.A. 1965); and Pratt Institute (M.F.A., 1968). She grew up in the South and the Bahama Islands, went North to graduate school, and West to sort out her life in 1972. Married once for seven years, she has spent the last twenty-five years in the company of women.

Tee A. Corinne always wanted her art to make a difference in the world around her and her public and private life have often been difficult to separate. She began exhibiting and publishing art and writing in the mid-1960s. She was a co-facilitator of the Feminist Photography Ovulars (1979-1981) and a co-founder of The Blatant Image, A Magazine of Feminist Photography (1981-1983). She is the author of one novel, three collections of short stories, four books of poetry and numerous artists books and small edition publications.

Family, her show of mixed media drawings about growing up in an alcoholic family, is the subject of a video interview by Jane Scott Productions. Portfolios of her art have been published in Lesbian Subjects, Feminist Studies, Gallerie: Women’s Art, The Advocate, Philadelphia Gay News, The Lesbian Inciter, I Am My Lover (first edition, 1979) and Femalia.

Ms. Corinne writes about art for a variety of publications and, since 1987, has been the art books columnist for Feminist Bookstore News. A co-founder and past co-chair of the Gay & Lesbian Caucus (an affiliated society of the College Art Association), she also co-founded the Women’s Caucus for Art Lesbian & Bisexual Caucus. In 1991 she was chosen by Lambda Book Report as one of the fifty most influential lesbians and gay men of the decade and in 1997 she received the Women’s Caucus for Art President’s Award for service to women in the arts.

Tee A. Corinne believes in long term relationships, dogs, cats, organic gardens and the virtues of being a pack rat.
