Colleen lives and has her studio in Cobham. Her passion has always been art and she studied Fine Art at Chelsea. Several commissions by Burberrys followed, requiring a series of paintings for their Knightsbridge windows. Colleen has had three solo exhibitions – one in the UK and two in Austria – and shown at The Mall Galleries for The Pastel Society, SWA and The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize. Five years studying portraiture at Heatherley’s, including the Diploma, has culminated in two commissions by Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and one by SOAS of their Vice Chancellor, Sir Cyril Philips.
