Colleen Nash Becht’s obsession is to take an ordinary moment and turn it into something eternal and sublime…with the risk and challenge of working the fluidity of Water Colors!
Colleen’s water colors are intricate and detailed, often hyper-realistic as they capture the beauty of sunlight and shadows. Her subject matter varies from anything and everything coastal, including tropical flora and fauna. Her latest obsession, wooden dinghies found floating in the waters from the Bahamas to California! Recently, Colleen has been busy completing commissioned work for private collectors.
Colleen’s work has gained national and international recognition and can be found in private collections worldwide. Her water colors adorn many local and not so local galleries (The Art House, Fort Pierce, Florida), local restaurants (12A Buoy, Cobb’s Landing, Fort Pierce Inlet Beach Bar & Grill & Sailfish Brewery) offices and retail establishments.
Colleen was born in the Chicago area, but has spent most of her life in in Fort Pierce. She graduated from John Carroll High School, and attended the Fine Art School of East Carolina University. Colleen is married to Local Attorney and Fort Pierce City Commissioner, Edward “Eddie” Becht and has three children, Brian, Allie and Drake.
