Welcome to Coral2Cove Studio Gallery ~ home of Artists: Colleen K Carrigan and my daughter, Kathryn L Bronstad.
Please check out Kathryn's art - she has completed her first year of
college and continues to produce and sell her beautiful art cards. Kathryn plans to become a veterinary technician to
help animals and pursue her artistic passion as a freelance artist.
Hello, my name is Colleen K Carrigan and as
a naturalist/artist, I have devoted many years to animal behavior studies and nature observations. Paintings that I produce
include: realistic representations of flora, fauna, seascapes, landscapes and fantasy renderings. My subjects range
across nature. I create works in watercolor and archival inks as well as acrylic and occasionally graphite.
I thoroughly enjoy producing miniature art cards - ACEO's. All the original art work for this site is 2.5"
x 3.5'' unless otherwise noted.
ACEO's (Art Cards - Editions
and Originals) are miniature treasures and are trade card size 2.5'' x 3.5''. They are an affordable way
to own original art - collect them, trade them and create them! Find ACEO's on eBay.
For many years, my work as a biologist involved the husbandry of tropical sharks in a marine research center. Blending
my science education and artistic talent has been a magical experience for me. My Gallery name: coral2cove was
derived from one of my favorite locations on the Coral Sea to a quaint little cove (Pirate's Cove) in a small bay of Puget
Sound across from where our royal kitty resides.
My Queensland Studio - I have enjoyed many hours (four journeys since 1996) in the lush tropical region of Northern Queensland,
Australia. I love creating art from the variety of flora and fauna represented in this unique area of the world.
With the Great Barrier Reef just offshore and the beautiful mangroves and rainforests to explore, it truly is paradise.
