Lives in Bedford-Stuyvesant. She was always “a maker.” As a child she opened her first box of crayons and her love of art began. Her acrylic and mixed media paintings “capture the feeling” of memorable moments. She layers color upon color, leaving traces of the artistic journey as part of the finished piece. She works in acrylic, pencil, paper, crayon, and objects found immediately at hand. Collins’ work has been exhibited at Gallery H, New York NY; Borough Hall, Brooklyn NY; Zion Art Gallery, Brooklyn NY; Pratt Institute, Brooklyn NY; Fulton Art Fair, Brooklyn NY; Skylight Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; and Simon Liu, Brooklyn NY.
