Korshunova was born in Leningrad, USSR in 1956. After applying to numerous remarkable art schools, she eventually managed to secure a place at the outstanding secondary school of Art named after I. E. Repin. In 1975, having graduated from this college, Korshunova continued with her artistic studies by being admitted to and successfully gaining a Masters of Fine Art with honors in 1981 from the Leningrad Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg. Here, the majority of her studies were conducted at the workshop of Professor M. Anikushin.
Throughout her education and having graduated from university, Korshunova continued to participate in numerous exhibitions in Russia (at the time USSR) as well as abroad from 1980s onwards. Accordingly, having completed her degree, and as is the tradition in Russia, Korshunova became an associate within the Union of Artists from 1981 onwards. The union of artists is a particular guild, where all artists who were considered as being duly trained and properly instructed were able to join, having had completed official criteria as instructed by the Ministry of Culture. If an artist was not part of the Union of Artists at the time, then he or she would be deemed as not being one by the state. In 1988 Korshunova was granted full membership into the Union, which solidified her reputation as an artist and additionally boosted her selling potential.
Since 2006, Kosrhunova has also been affiliated with the union called 'Polirealizm', which is an artistic organization between contemporary Russian artists who seek to establish a connection with their avant-garde roots, whilst simultaneously putting them into a contemporary context.show
