COL-e moved to New York and then Los Angeles, where she attended graduate school at California State University earning a formal education in the Fine Arts.


"Tropical Moon"

COL-e developed her painting techniques through years of traveling and studying master painters. She perfected her own original style of artwork by spending a great deal of time with many other successful and recognized professional artists at various studios all over the United States. This is how COL-e's unique method and style of painting emerged, resulting in the creation of her own vividly bold, abstract figurative artwork.


COL-e's art is very unique and distinguishable because of her specific style and color pallet. She has created a new method of painting.

Contrary to traditional painting Col-e uses tools that resemble culinary utensils. This technique combined with the use of acrylic and silicone mixed together enable the artist to create heavily textured and raised surfaces on her canvases. Powerful and intense colors drive the bold brush strokes to convey the simplicity and mood of her paintings.
