About Colleen M. Rudolf

"I create using varied materials and processes while exploring subjects from the overwhelming world around me. I believe in collaboration. I am intrigued by gestural, non word based communication in all species.  Animal <–> human <—> machine; this chain is relevant to my work."

Born 1981 in New York City, Colleen later earned her undergraduate degree from Skidmore College in 2003 with departmental honors in Fine Art.
