About Colleen …

Colleen Raphael McGunnigle earned her BA in Fine Art from Providence College before studying at Parson's School of Design in New York City. Her work has won awards such as Best Illustrated Ad Campaign [Associated Press] and has been published in books including Successful Direct Mail Design [PIE Books]. Colleen's work has exhibited at The East End Arts Council as well as galleries in Southampton, Quogue, Providence and private collections.

Since opening her illustration and graphic design studio in 1989, Colleen's work has appeared in numerous upscale magazines including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Town & Country and GQ and she continues working in the field of illustration, identity, collateral and web design with her graphic design company Artesian.

Drawing on her training and real-world experience, Colleen began teaching independent workshops to help students prepare for a career in graphic arts, cultivating essential skills which they hadn't learned in the classroom. A heartfelt love of children inspired her to develop the Young Artists Club, encouraging kids to discover their own unique gifts and abilities.
