Portraits by Colleen - Philadelphia, PA
Art is a gift in this world. I make drawings, paintings, photographs and sculpture. I am intrigued by the animal world, and love learning about the creatures that mean so much to their humans. Each portrait is unique and one of a kind. Let's work together!
PORTRAITS BY COLLEEN started in 2009 when I made my first portrait of a dog that I had met at the PSPCA where I volunteered to photograph the available animals. Since then I have volunteered with the Penn Vet Working Dog Center, where I witnessed the potential of dogs to perform search and rescue tasks and detect cancer cells. I assisted with and photographed programs like Hand 2 Paw and New Leash on Life, which both demonstrated the healing power that dogs and cats have for humans. I am a member of HeartsSpeak.org, an organization who's mission is to unite the individual efforts of animal artists and animal rescues into collective action for social change.
I look forward to learning more about you and yours four legged friend.
