Colleen Reddy – Artist Statement
Born before the age of day care centers, my mom, Joan Mamola, would drag me to her art classes where I would doodle Holly Hobbies and hippie flowers. My obsession with paint never left me and resurfaced in my adult life.
By day I preform cosmetic makeovers to hum-frum walls. When not transforming walls, the sight of a blank canvas compels me to grab a brush, pass my passion from palette to canvas. I love what I do. Painting makes me feel like I am accomplishing something. I like taking nothing and turning it into something.
I am presently a member of the Grand Blanc Arts Council, and Art at the Market, which is located upstairs at the Flint Farmers Market.
Commissioned paintings done within the last few years include: 501 Bar & Grill, Rowe Inc., Genesee County Community Mental Health, and Cisclo Title Company.
