Colleen received a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the University of West Georgia and a Master of Fine Arts from Georgia Southern University. Colleen now resides in Augusta, Georgia.

Her work is influenced by nature, botanical forms and mark-making. The mid 20th century painter Philip Guston once stated that it is “the nakedness of drawing” to which he is attracted. Colleen also enjoys the “nakedness” of drawing, the raw marks and lines used to describe forms in which she works multiple mediums and layers.
