About the Artist
Mission: Inspire creativity and encourage possibilities
I believe fear and discouragement stop the flow of creativity and possibility. It's my souls purpose to seek out joy and to share messages of inspiration and encouragement.
My artworks fluid movement ignites the imagination, just like when we were children playfully staring up at the clouds to reflect and see what we could see.
Colleen grew up in a small country town in Connecticut, now a wife and a mother of three amazing children; currently living in Hendersonville TN.
From an early age Colleen enjoyed drawing. Art class was her favorite subject when she was growing up and one of the best Christmas gifts she ever received was a huge art kit with its own easel. Through the years Colleen loved doing crafts and art projects with her children, slowly cultivating a passion for organization and crafting.
In 2008, her church was expanding its children’s building and asked for volunteers to help paint the murals. As the project developed the artist and owner of Imagination Transformation hired her to work on the murals. After close to a year on the project Colleen’s spark was lit and she had developed a passion to paint.
Being self-taught, her skills have developed through art videos, books, and practice. Colleen has an appreciation for all different types of mediums but predominately works with Acrylics and is known for her three dimensional hymn paper trees. She embraces trying new technics and sells her pieces at several local shops, exhibits at area events and does custom commission work.
