Custom Paintings and "Painted Memories"
Colleen's passion for travel has led her to beautiful settings throughout Europe. Creating paintings of her favorite scenes and memories sparked the idea that she could provide this service for others. Aside from painting scenes that capture the beauty of an Italian town or French vineyard where she has wandered, Colleen offers her clients the opportunity to share photos of their special place in order for her to bring it to life in a painting. Colleen wants to redefine the idea of the types of paintings people commission. Most people are familiar with the commission concept as it relates to portraiture but Colleen feels it is really applicable for these kinds of travel and memory related images. Rather than clients searching for a painting on their trip and being confronted by work that isn't quite right, they can commission Colleen to paint the exact scene that spoke to them - in the medium they want, at the size they need.
