Colleen began her art career working out of Carefree Fine Art Studio near the home she shared with her husband, Tom, in Carefree, AZ in 2009.  While Carefree was new on their long list of residences across the country, they originally moved to Arizona in 1992 and found themselves longing for the desert once again while living in Florida.  However, in 2014, they found themselves once again packing boxes and moving "home" to California.

Today, 30+ years later, Colleen finds inspiration through art.  She began her current passion by studying with many talented instructors in the Carefree-Scottsdale area and has produced works of art in a multitude of mediums.  While she enjoys the experimentation, today she is concentrating on oils, watercolors and inks.
