Colleen Thornbrugh s a professional and teaching artist currently residing in Fort Wayne, IN.

Colleen has a Bachelor's Degree in Digital Media Art / Animation from Huntington Unversity. She is currently pursuing an MFA degree.


Colleen has many years of experience teaching art to K-12 children. Colleen has taught hundreds of students over the years, working with the Great Schools Partnership in Knoxville, the Knoxville Museum of Art, the University of Tennessee, Boys & Girls Clubs, Thursday Connection Homeschool Cooperative, and Williamson County Schools in Nashville. She has a passion for helping her students experiment with many different media – everything from oil pastels to stop-motion animation and puppet building!


When not teaching classes, Colleen works as a mixed media artist from her home studio. Colleen's paintings are mainly non-representational, meant to evoke the inner landscape. She loves to work intuitively, experimenting with color and texture. Currently, Colleen is experimenting with combining animation and movement with abstract painting.
