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."

Colleen Rudolf is a multi-media artist, specializing in sculpture and photography. Born 1981 in New York City, Colleen later earned her undergraduate degree from Skidmore College in 2003 with departmental honors in Fine Art. In 2008, she received her graduate degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.  During her time there she was awarded the Fellowship Juried Prize honorable mention and the Justine Cretella Memorial Scholarship. She currently works out of her studio in Philadelphia doing a variety of activities, including but not limited to: creating 2d and 3d portraits for private clients, designing and executing large scale drawings and sculptures of wildlife, employing fabrication techniques including woodworking and metalworking as well as teaching private sculpting lessons based on the figure. Her sculptural work is installed publicly throughout the region and she has worked with several organizations to raise awareness and funding for wildlife conservation efforts. In 2016 she became a recipient of the Don and Virginia Eckleberry Endowment. Rudolf enjoys working collaboratively and believes art to be an essential part of life. Please get in touch to learn more.
