Default Hello from Clinton, MA

My name is Steve Collins and I hail from Clinton, MA. I dabbled in egg tempera while in high school and absolutely loved it. Oddly, I haven't managed to get back to it since, largely because my art life hit the back burner while I supported my family.

I started painting again with regularity about 7 years ago, primarily in watercolor, but also oil and most recently, acrylic. Of these, I feel most comfortable working in watercolor, though acrylic has been growing on me.

After nearly 30 years as a software engineer, I was laid off in early 2009 and with my wife Sherry's blessing and help, made the frightening decision to switch careers, becoming a full time artist, custom framer, giclee printer and art gallery owner. We jointly operate Collins Artworks in Clinton, MA and are nearing our 2nd anniversary as a business.

If you check the Workshops page on this site, you will see listings for two Koo Schadler egg tempera workshops that we're hosting in late June, Egg Tempera II and Old Master Design.

We still have openings for both, but especially for Old Master Design, so if you're at all interested in attending, please let us know.

I hope to attend 1 or both workshops myself. I'm really looking forward to the chance to try this wonderful medium again.

Steve Collins
