I’m Colleen, an illustrator and motion designer, who loves anything emotive, magical and organic. 

Let’s chat!

I'm an illustrator, motion designer, and occasional writer and cartoonist, currently living in Barcelona.  Originally from New Jersey, I got my BFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2014. 

I have two cats with three eyes between them, a mountain of half-abandonded hobbies, and a love for nature, people power, and education. 

I run Sluggish Wife, a store for people who love magic and sports, as well.

Clients include: The New York Times, The New Yorker, NBC News, Xerox, The Nation, The Freelancer's Union, Little Bee Books, The Baffler, The New Republic, Lit Hub, The Sierra Club, The Marshall Project, The Reproductive Justice Project, The Nib, Buzzfeed.

I’ve also run drawing workshops with The Goethe Institut and NYC H2O. If you have a workshop you’d like to run, I’d love to hear it!
