Colleen is currently based out of Pittsfield, Vermont. With a background in photography and travel, she gained a unique perspective of the world and a feel for design. She started doodling on stock lists and has transformed this haphazard hobby into a full-fledged passion.
She graduated from the University of Illinois in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art Photography. She absolutely adores the outdoors, and her photography and hand lettering reflect that. Throughout her explorations, Colleen’s been lucky enough to photograph beautiful wildlife and incredibly unique landscapes of the world. She took a typography class in college that planted in her a seed of appreciation for hand lettering, and she hasn’t looked back!
Hailing from Illinois, she has since moved around to Montana and Colorado. Along with owning and operating Wander On Words™, Colleen is also currently a freelance graphic designer in Vermont where she uses her creativity to help small businesses flourish. In her spare time, she can be found exploring the Northeast by hiking, biking, backpacking, snowboarding, skinning, photographing, camping, and generally adventuring outside.
