Colleen Mann is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her interest in self-expression arose early in childhood. Mann’s work probes femininity and the internal conversation. By reflecting on her own experiences, she has a better grasp of how they have impacted her understanding of the world. In Mann’s work, a unique feminine perspective emerges through the imagery, providing her audience with insight into her world of recovery, rejuvenation and reflection. Abstracting what originally existed as memories and journal entries, Mann utilizes her artistic practices to help her viewers reach that same acceptance of the self.
Mann received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photographic and Imaging Arts from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2015. With a balance of art and science, she majored in Fine Art Photography and minored in Imaging Systems.
She currently lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts where she is a candidate for a Master of Arts in
Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in
Art Therapy at Lesley University.
