Colleen Sanchez is a Honolulu based contemporary painter of flowers and foliage, landscape, and still life.

Colleen Sanchez is a Honolulu-based contemporary painter of flowers and foliage, landscape, and still life compositions. Her interest in drawing started at very early age, in part influenced by her father’s interest in art and music, but that was put aside for many years while working and raising a family. After a lengthy management career in Canada where she was born and grew up, Collen moved to Hawaii and was inspired by new interests, especially the desire to capture her version of the natural beauty in her new surroundings. Her paintings reflect the light and colorful vibrancy found in the Hawaiian islands.

Painting in watercolor has predominantly been her choice, though Colleen also works in pastel and oil. Though she has taken a few watercolor classes and workshops with Michael Genger and George Woollard, Colleen is mainly self-taught.

Since 2010 she has exhibited several of her paintings in Hawaii Watercolor Society juried exhibitions in which she won awards including a purchase award from the Hawaii State Museum by the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.

One of her floral paintings published as a 1st finalist to the International Artist magazine floral and still life competition. Colleen’s paintings are in many private collections across the US and Canada. She is a member of the Hawaii Watercolor Society.
