"...Photographer and educator Colleen Mullins has the capability to transport her audience to the private world of the cruise ship elite, or show them trauma bestowed upon New Orleans’ urban trees in a post-Katrina landscape. Her projects are long-term investments that document hidden or overlooked slices in our world."
-Constance Blog

Colleen Mullins has received the Women's Studio Workshop Project Grant, four Minnesota State Arts Board Grants, and two McKnight Artist Fellowships for Photographers. Her photographs are in the collections of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Southeast Museum of Photography, and the Weeks Gallery Global Collection of Photography, and her artist books are in numerous collections, including The Center for Creative Photography Library at the University of Arizona, Dickson Art Center at UCLA, and Yale University’s ‘Art of the Book’ collection.

Mullins has over fifteen years of experience teaching in higher education. From 2006-2012, she was the Director of the BFA program in photography at The Art Institutes International Minnesota, where she helped write the college's Higher Learning Commission Self-Study toward initial accreditation, planned and executed the move of her program to a new state-of-the-art facility, initiated a travel program to New Orleans for both Photo Essay and Short Documentary courses, and created an assessment program in Photography, which became the model for the entire college. For the last year and a half of her tenure there, she also directed the Digital Film & Video Production Program. Since The Art Institutes reorganized in 2012, she has been pursuing her creative work in photography and book arts, teaching, and devoting time to professional practices coaching for artists.
