Colleen first studied art at Liverpool Art School where her focus was on children’s animation and design.
Studying the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge Art School led Colleen to having two picture books published after graduation - Under the Silvery Moon and Little Friend (Little Tiger Press). Her recent book projects include the No More Worries series published in February 2020 (Autumn Publishing) and Making Friends: A Book About First Friendships published in August 2020 (Walker). Colleen has also worked on licensing and magazine commissions, an activity book and selling her own prints online. She is interested in capturing emotion, human expression, and loves to tell a wider story through one simple picture. She enjoys working with traditional and mixed media and is currently developing her own authored picture books. Much of Colleen’s inspiration comes from her passion for color, nature and daily life with her children.
