COMING LATE SUMMER 2018 -' A Journey'

on view at The Edison Studio - Monhegan  Maine

Colleen explored self portraits while undergoing intensive breast cancer treatments.

As she swiftly lost her most female of forms, her breasts & long hair, she takes on the battle embracing and becoming iconic versions of the female... 

These portraits offer a bold view of one coming undone and fighting back & empowering herself as a Woman no matter what.
