Colleen Lavender

Sculptor
  » Colchameleon Design

Colleen is a prolific sculptor renowned for her large-scale public artworks. She specialises in transforming recycled steel; ribbon steel, flat plate, Rio bar, and 44-gallon drums, etc. through a fusion of welding techniques, plasma cutting, and unparalleled creativity.

Colleen’s journey through the sculptural world has been varied – large public works in Beaudesert, local Queensland commissions for collectors, international works and exhibitions throughout Australia.

Her attitude towards her medium is often unorthodox and the result an exciting mixture of positive and negative spaces and a definite strength and bang for your buck.

The plasma cutter and welder are utilised side by side and produce an exquisite combination of character and eccentricity.
