"Amidst her multifarious artistic explorations of creativity, Colette's unique commissioned portraits reveal the spirit and character of her subjects on a level rarely seen or undertaken in contemporary work. She renders their true self and innate esthetic as the focus of these portraits which are visual and sensorial delights. Wildly and quixotically original, her portraits transform, through paint, glitter, objects and collage, the photographic image of the designated subject into an individualized yet ideal dream figure. These haunting depictions, reminiscent in their painterly sense of celebrated 18th century European masters, honor the individuals idiosyncrasies and chosen appurtenances." Elizabeth Rogers, 2002
