Colleen has exhibited in eleven countries such as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway and the USA and been published in a few more including China, Austria and Italy.
Recent projects include a daily ring project; in 2010 she made 365 rings as an experiment in recycled, alternative and repurposed materials. Starting Jan 1st and ending Dec 31st she experimented with materials such as elastic bands from around morning newspapers and produce to twist ties to recycled straws.
Related to this project, Colleen curated her first exhibition, ‘Ring a Day’ at Punch Gallery in Seattle which was part of the SNAG (Society of North American Goldsmiths) annual conference. The exhibition featured 365 rings by 65 international artists and was juried from 17,000 photos.
