Colleen has been sketching since 2006. Prior to picking up a pencil, the only art work that Colleen had done was in high school during art lessons. After falling ill, Colleen started to sketch as a passtime while recouperating and this rejuvenated her love of the art. The first book Colleen got out of the library on art said ” anyone can draw” and that was enough to get started. Over the last six years Colleen has completed many sketches, and although only having completed one oil pastel, Colleen is keen to dabble in oil painting as a project in the future.
