Her subjects include family members, friends, fellow artists, and self-portraits. A lifetime New Yorker, Colleen began her studies at the Art Students League when she was fourteen years old. She would later go on to apprentice with Sam Adoquei, Andrea Smith, and Jacob Collins. Colleen has been the recipient of the Newington Cropsey Travel Grant. In 2011 she received an Affiliate Fellowship to reside at the American Academy in Rome with her husband, Will St. John. Colleen paints and teaches privately out of her studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
