Brett M. Colon is a visual artist originally from Northeastern Connecticut. She graduated with her B.F.A. in Illustration/Animation and B.A. in Psychology from the University of Connecticut in 2017. Currently, she is working toward earning her M.F.A., with a concentration in Painting, from Western Connecticut State University where she is a color theory Graduate Teaching Assistant. Her primary media are watercolor paint and dip pen ink, where her marks explore the boundaries of expression and exactness to convey not only the look of the subject matter, but also the ambiance of the scene.

Aside from pursuing her fine art, Ms. Colon, is a piano and guitar instructor in New Windsor, New York.
