I am proud to say that I have purchased 2 pieces of Colleen’s art as gifts for my mother. Not only is her skill as an artist second to none, the way she incorporates the detail to give each piece life is amazing! My mom proudly shows off the artwork to visitors, and is thrilled her daughter knows the artist personally.

I have been painting since 1984, and teaching since 1989. I have been fortunate enough to travel the US to painting conventions, and get taught by some of the best artists in the country. I have owned my own store and taught many different students over the years. I will be attending a convention in Columbus Ohio, called HOOT, this year. There I will be interviewing some of the premiere figures in the art world and reporting to you on my blog. I am a Kingslan art instructor, and would like to give you all the tips and tricks I can, so you may take these with you on your painting journey.
