STUDIO ART +
I am Colleen Kilbreath and my majors are studio art and self-design. My love for portraits and literature inform my pursuits in studio art. In addition to visual depcitions of American lives, I am interested in the rivaling depictions in biographies, memoirs, short stories, poetry, and historical works.
A large part of my portfolio contains portraits of veterans as I try to find the spirit within each soldier. I find that I best portray veterans in clay and watercolor. I love realism, which is a accurate, detailed, unembellished depiction of nature or contemporary life. Realism rejects imaginative idealization in favor of a close observation of outward appearance. I have discovered that there has been a resurgence in learning from the masters. One thing I enjoyed at Colby-Sawyer College is the quality of teaching.
