Colleen believes that artistic expression is a powerful means to help us move toward healing and wellness. On the artistic plane we are all able to connect with compassion for ourselves and others. We are able to express what is hidden, and give life and release to our shadows and joys. Colleen believes in using creative expression to better ourselves and the lives of others.
