Colleen’s three-dimensional botanical works combine detailed drawing in archival pigment and watercolour on cotton paper.  Each piece comprises hundreds of individual parts, finely drawn, cut, embossed and shaped then assembled with fine wire.

 

These delicate pieces are mounted onto archival cotton paper using entomology pins, giving the appearance of floating and employing shadow as a transient feature of the work.   Artworks are then framed in custom made raw Australian Oak 6cm deep box frames.

 

Colleen’s finely detailed work is all about celebrating our environment and rediscovering the pleasure of nature. It aims to encourage the onlooker to slow, look closely, engage the imagination and connect with the cycle of life around us.
