Colleen’s studio will be open to the public on Saturday, April 30 from 11AM to 5 PM and Sunday, May 1 from noon to 5 PM.
My mixed media art represents a visual language that I use as a bridge to communicate emotions to the viewer. My goal is for the viewer to be able to access my internal worldview through my artwork.
Throughout all the mediums that I use to do artwork, there are several common threads. My style centers around richly detailed, layered images which engage the viewer and encourage him/her to spend time absorbing more than the surface level. I frequently refer to my style as “more” – I use more tools, more techniques, and more visual components to bring depth to the pieces. I employ colorful patterns to strike at the viewers’ emotions and I obsess over the details. I believe if viewer’s see all of the parts, patterns and details, it brings a more comprehensive and emotional image to bear.
I don’t limit myself to specific tools or mediums. To me, mixed media equals freedom.
