Colleen has loved words and pictures since she was a little girl; along with animals, astronauts and architecture. She received her degree in English and Art History before attending OCAD to study illustration & design. After 12 years in the advertising and design industry, she started her freelance illustration career.  From portraits for the Grammy Awards to pop-up greeting cards for Up With Paper, Colleen has created sophisticated images with a whimsical twist for editorial, advertising, and corporate clients. She enjoys the creative process and finding solutions unique to each project.
