Colleen Hammond

Colleen graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and received her BFA from the University of Pennsylvania. She is an art educator and has taught in the Division of Continuing Studies at the University of the Arts, The Mural Arts Program and Gloucester City Community Education Program. She was the Resident Artist at Cheltenham Center for the Arts for 2 years and has continued to volunteer and teach at the Center.  She co-founded A Square Deal (2006 - 2013) which functioned as a means for artists to expand their exposure using non-traditional venues and making art affordable and accessible, and to demonstrate art as an integral part of everyone’s daily life. Her work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions throughout the tri-state area. Colleen currently resides in her hometown of Moorestown, NJ in a modest cottage with a Yurt in the yard, a cat and her loving, supportive husband. They are proud empty-nesters of their son Noah, who continues on an inherent creative spirit. 

"The dictionary defines 'ah' as an expression used to describe delight, relief, regret or contempt. Our everyday world is filled to the brim with objects and people and places that demand nothing more of us than the acknowledgment of their existence. In my work I am trying to show you all the 'ah' that I see."
