Artist Focus: Troy Collins

A focus on the artwork of Troy Collins

To watch Troy Collins paint is to find yourself immersed in “an on-location classroom” where you can watch and learn painting techniques from one of the top landscape impressionists in the United States today. He graciously spends time explaining the way he applies the massive amounts of oil paint to the canvas and how he distinguishes the steps and movement with each stroke of his palette knife. Whether you are an adult or a young child, you leave mesmerized by his ability to bring otherworldly light and wonder to each painting he creates.When Love Takes You In, oil on canvas, 60 x 15"

Two of Collins’ lifelong students (and daughters), Mika Collins and Cecille Schulz, are now making their way into the art world with the same energy and design insight that their father possesses.  They have already experienced a sold-out show last March and are now showing in Montana galleries. Each daughter brings her own individual style to their creations but much of their inspiration comes directly from growing up and spending time with their father in his studio. With One Voice, oil on canvas, 40 x 16"

Shulz says, “The Bitterroot Valley is where the creating happens: in a shared space with our dad. The space may be tight at times, but dad’s grace is overflowing and that makes all the difference in the world.”Where I Belong, oil on canvas, 40 x 30"Collins has an upcoming one-man show with Mountain Trails Gallery in Park City, Utah, December 17 through 31. —
