Filled with color, joy, and a bit of whimsy, Colleen's paintings are approached from the lighter side. She brings to the canvas her many years spent in Wyoming's wilderness observing wildlife and the relationships of the equine friends she accompanied on the adventures.Colleen's interest in art goes back to her first year in school (yes kindergarten)where she remembers explaining perspective to a fellow student. In elementary school, teachers were already encouraging her to pursue a career in the arts. Her first commission came while in High School. She continued to pursue an art education in college, majoring in Fine Art at Colorado State University. In 2005 Colleen returned to the world of Fine Art turning those sketches into works that would be winning awards at Regional and National Shows.
