From colleenbeyerstewart.com – Colleen received a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the University of West Georgia and a Master of Fine Arts from Georgia Southern University. Colleen now resides in Augusta, Georgia. She is the visual arts teacher at Harlem High School.
Her work is influenced by nature, botanical forms and mark-making. The mid 20th century painter Philip Guston once stated that it is “the nakedness of drawing” to which he is attracted. Colleen also enjoys the “nakedness” of drawing, the raw marks and lines used to describe forms. Each piece begins as a charcoal drawing. She then builds layers of oil paint and carves back into them with her charcoal pencil.
