John Collins, MBA, is a lifelong artist who grew up and studied here in Western Massachusetts. His love of art has spanned many forms including drawing, painting, and sculpting.
The three-dimensional human form although challenging is by far his favorite subject matter. Sculpting for 30 years he has experimented with many materials including stone, wood, clay and even snow or sand, winning competitions for his unique larger than life human form sand sculptures on Narragansett Beach. His other “more permanent” sculptures have been exhibited locally and throughout New England including the Norman Rockwell Museum’s juried sculpture exhibition and the Northeast Fine Arts Show. He also has a talent for teaching and enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge for art with people of all ages. As “Artist in Residence” at Eagle Hill School John created a bust sculpture of one the school’s leaders, Dr Riendeau. see article
