My Bio
I most enjoy drawing and oil painting, but I also dabble in crochet and other artsy-craftsy things. At some point I would like to make a career of it (and I do sell my art on Etsy), but currently I'm doing this in what "free time" I have, though I will try to update regularly.

I welcome advice, criticism, and comments on any of my work - I don't mind if you don't like something as long as you have some constructive advice for me and you aren't rude. I really, truly, seriously appreciate anything that can help me improve. Even if you don't paint or draw, everyone has a different aesthetic, so maybe you will notice something I would not catch or have an idea that I have not tried! And if nothing else, please please feel free to give specifics on what you do and do not like. :)

Thank you so much for visiting my Deviantart site!
Llamas for everyone :)

Feel free to message me (or email me at scenesbycolleen @ gmail.com) if you have any private questions/ comments.

My shop is here - though feel free to ask about anything I've done that you don't see there! I haven't listed some things and I occasionally will do commissions too.

April 2019 Raffle
Update: The winner has been decided and notified (they chose the eyeball) - thank you to those who participated and good luck on the next raffle (May 3rd) :) Raffle time! This month's raffle is for one of these three (framed, about 8x10") charcoal drawings I made a few years ago.  While I mostly paint now, I also love drawing with charcoal, and I had white charcoal pencils and black paper and just had a good time drawing some "spooky" things.  I thought that some of you might also like to have a little spooky drawing for yourself, so I thought it'd be a nice raffle ;)  All you need to do to enter is to comment (or send me a message) on whi
