Colleen Watchorn is a local Steinbach artist.
Colleen's first art class in 1992 was a Christmas gift from her husband. It was an oils painting class instructed by Wendy Kroeker at the Steinbach Cultural Arts Centre. Colleen grew up hating art because various teachers would tell her to "draw a tree," for example, but not give her the tools to do it.
As soon as Colleen picked up a paintbrush, she realized it was an extension of who she was. Now, even when she's not painting, there's at least three ideas for paintings in her head at all times.
Colleen teaches art at several of the local schools, and has also given free art lessons at the Loewen Green Art Scene during the summer months and painted in the Artists in the City tent at the Summer in the City Festival.
