"Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dreams?" - Tim Burton
                 Twenty four year old American Mixed-Media Expressionist Artist born in East Lansing, Michigan. Currently located in his home town of Mason.

         Colin focuses on making artwork that comes from raw emotion and feelings within the moment of creating. Mental Illness is an extremely common topic in his life, and is what his work represents. His battle with depression, anxiety, and ADHD since taking pills at just seven years old to help “make him better.” Even while while taking the same medications today, creating has allowed him to vent the things he can’t say, the dark thoughts and demons that haunt him. What appears in front of him once he is finished with a piece are what he was been wrestling with in his mind. The work Colin creates can be extremely dark in nature because of the illness, while others are extremely colorful and welcoming because he might have had a good day. He has always felt like he doesn’t belong because of how different he is from everyone he has ever known. But his artwork is what gives him the confidence to be his true self, and unafraid to express how just how "different" he can be from the crowd.
