Welcome to my art storefront. I hope you enjoy my work. Painting is a way to tap into my humanity on a deeper level and to respect the universal emotional impulse that unites us.  A rolling landscape may evoke the same calming emotion as a vase of flowers, while my intention was to capture some deep-seated aspect of my core being in paint. 

 "I love all artists." One of my students told me that. I couldn't have said it better myself. Artists are my people. We find common ground in our need to express, to emote, to seek a truer version of ourselves, and to recognize some aspect of life or imagination as important enough to paint, draw, write, perform, sing about or inspire.

I am a graduate of both the College of the Holy Cross and Bard's master's degree program in decorative arts and design. I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to Thailand in 2010-2011, where I designed fabrics and studied textile traditions. My most formative year of my travels and education was in Florence, Italy in 2005-2006. I worked in the arts in New York City for eight years including a curatorial management position at the Museum of Arts and Design. At MAD, I managed a large exhibition on digital design in 2013 titled "Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital" featuring over 80 artists and designers, including two outdoor installations in Columbus Circle. I enjoyed my work in Visitor Services at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for several years.

Originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania, I will always appreciate all the Endless Mountain region has given me including time spent in its natural beauty as well as my friendships with fellow artists. Now in South Carolina's Low Country in Bluffton, I'm very inspired by the deep sunsets and wildlife within the local marsh landscape by the sea.

Thank you for following along on my journey.

I wish you a calm heart. 

xx Colleen
