Colleen is the heart of C.M. Taylor Art and has enjoyed creating all her life, being favored with a mother who encouraged experimentation. She finds creative contentment in a variety of fine and textile arts, in addition to her (paused) career as a costume technician in Chicago. Her current pandemic specialty is custom graphite portraits, working from beloved photos of family, friends, or pets. She is excited to have the support of the Backstage Bazaar community to help her share her art with a caring, involved audience.
