2018–19 featured artist: Maureen Collins, Wilmington, Del.
Creativity is a lifelong, core part of Collins artistic and soul language. Years ago, she was diagnosed with a life changing illness, Guillain-Barre Syndrome. This challenged her to find new ways and modalities of expression, as she learned, with deep gratitude, to regain motor skills and then to walk, again. Long periods of immobilization deepened her ability to observe people, objects and landscapes with newfound resonance. This expanded time helped Collins to absorb and express awareness’s, taught her patience in allowing details of design to be revealed and developed. She is very grateful for the creative process in the unfurling of each day, for the ability to share its beauty and unique imprint on her life. Collins is currently focused on photography, but enjoys painting, collage, ceramics, mosaics, silver work and fabric design, with images from one medium often inspiring and flowing to another.
