I see my art as an ever-evolving process. I am interested in painting diverse subject matters which are inspired by my life experiences. I believe my paintings reflect the way I see the world. I am drawn to nature’s unique beauty whether it be traveling deep inside a beautiful flower or capturing the luminosity of the Atlantic, Provençal or Tuscan light.
Colleen was raised on the Prairies, lived in Ontario and has recently moved to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Her passion for painting surfaced when she took early retirement in the mid 1990’s and her art incorporates her two avid interests prior to that time: traveling and gardening. Her paintings reflect her love of colour and energy. Although she still paints in watercolour, her art now has evolved to include other mediums such as acrylic. Her work has appeared in exhibits in Ontario, Nova Scotia and Scotland and is held in private collections in Canada, United States, New Zealand, France and Scotland.
