“The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.”

– Frank Lloyd Wright


HOUSE PORTRAIT GALLERY

Over the years I have created portraits in 46 states and in a total of 35 architectural styles. Please enjoy my house portrait galleries.

“We all know splendid artists who’re struggling to make a living — even some of history’s greatest artists from Rembrandt, Modigliani, Vermeer, and Gauguin to Van Gogh have died penniless. It may be the reality of many artists past and present, but Collins has a remarkably fresh take on finding work, which involves getting beyond one’s studio walls.”
