Art by Colette
Colette Colgrove is a multi-faceted, Canadian artist, currently based in Surrey BC. She has been creating since childhood, further honing her craft and focus on abstract pieces, since a recent car accident in 2018. She uses her art as a medium of expression and as a creative outlet for personal challenges that have had a significant impact in her life. She works primarily with acrylic on canvas, both in detailed paintings and fluid artwork (pouring). She has also forayed into 3 dimensional pieces using several glass fusion techniques.
She is passionate about healing through art; each piece has a story and yet develops a story for its forever home with the collector. She also loves teaching and sharing her experience with clients of all ages, building self-esteem and teamwork in a workshop environment.
She won an art scholarship in 2008 as part of an adult continuing education degree, and her pieces were on display at the main education office, as well as being included as part of a coffee shop themed drama production at Bear Creek Church, in Surrey, BC.
Colette is proud to be an online artist in the Pacific Arts Market community, and her art can be found at pacificartsmarket.ca/online-store. You can also peruse her pieces on Instagram @gottagettheartout."
