About Colleen

Teaching is an important and exciting part of my day. It inspires and energizes me, and I want to devote my time to working with students and helping them to develop, express, and engage in their ideas. I am inspired to extend educational opportunities to students from diverse backgrounds, students with a wide range of educational experiences and artistic goals. I would be honored to be part of the process of making college accessible for the young artist.

I am also a practicing artist myself. I have a gallery in Washington DC that regularly exhibits my work. I have participated in exhibits in New York, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. My sculpture was included in several outdoor exhibits, and I recently participated in an art fair at the Brooklyn Museum. My work is in many private collections.

I have a passion for art and a passion for teaching. I've been fortunate in that I have been able to successfully do both. I have been teaching and making my own art in the disciplines of: drawing, painting 2D Design, Sculpture, 3D Design and Art Appreciation at the college level for 12 years. I have and continue to develop curriculum and design courses for my current students. I look forward to helping the art student to reach their artistic goals.

My passion, extensive experience and dedication to the arts is a way of life for me. I am encouraged when I see my students realizing their creative and personal aspirations. Passing on what I have learned from others and/or of my own accord is a very rewarding accomplishment.
