A native of Montana, Troy Collins states, “I’ve always found inspiration and spiritual rejuvenation in the wilderness, and translating my experience of nature into artistic creation has been the focus of my adult life.”
As a protégé of master landscape painter Robert Moore, Troy Collins developed a passion for creating a “complete visual experience,” one that connects the viewer with the subject through color, texture and design. Troy credits Robert Moore with inspiring his love of Russian Impressionism whose scenes of everyday life resonate with pure color and shimmering light.
“Painting is a spiritual process for me. I pour my heart into each composition as a celebration of the miracle of creation. My goal as an artist is to move the viewer to experience a flood of powerful emotions, to feel the energy that flows through me as I put brush to canvas.”
