Part 2 of our interview with Helen Collen  

Helen L. Collen is a theatrical/film costume designer, seamstress and wardrobe supervisor of 24 years. She is also a painter, crochet artist and writer (including poetry and songwriting). Having received her B.F.A in Costume Design from the acclaimed theatrical arts conservatory at S.U.N.Y Purchase College in Purchase, NY she is a recipient of both the Vivian Robinson Audelco Award and a New York City Mayoral Citation for Artistic Service. Before moving to Southern Orange County, California in 2010 her union memberships included I.A.T.S.E Local 764 (NYC), United Scenic Artists 829 (NYC), and I.A.T.S.E Local 487 (Baltimore, MD).  Although Helen began taking photos for fun at 15 years old, she didn’t seriously dive into the craft until her wardrobe career began in 1996 in theatre and film. What started out as a routine archiving of costume continuity rolled into media still photography for Brooklyn, NY’s Billie Holiday theatre where for 15 years she also served as that theatre’s resident costume designer. Over the years her photos blossomed into dramatic live concert photos, colorful land, sea & skyscape canopies, and the hidden wonderment of everyday life.  In keeping with her photographic motto “See Life” Helen’s photography has merely transferred the designer’s talents to the camera lens seamlessly creating visual tapestries that are specifically aimed at stimulating the senses and starting conversations…
