Sharing the journey of my reception with you…
Exhibition Introduces Colleen Quen’s Journey From Couture Fashion Designer To Watercolor Artist at the Thoreau Center for Sustainability’s China Brotsky Art Gallery in the Presidio of San Francisco from June 12 to September 5, 2014. Featuring some 30 exquisite and whimsical watercolor on rice paper works, the exhibition explores a profound, unconscious realm of Colleen Quen’s imagination as she transcends three decades of fashion design to her newfound journey as a watercolor artist.
Couturiere Colleen Quen leads a workshop illustrating how fashion and costume design are integral in creating character. With her extensive knowledge of both fashion and ink wash painting, Colleen explains how to incorporate watercolor painting techniques with fashion illustration silhouettes to create imaginary gowns for characters including Cinderella and Snow White.
