"A dedicated teacher throughout his life, Lowell Collins generously and passionately shared all he knew with others and especially with his son, Michael Roque Collins. Innovative and intellectual, purposeful and poignant, his work consistently reflects the spirit of the artist, the spirit of a Renaissance man. His work showed great curiosity and great courage. He tried new ideas and challenged himself continuously. He worked in several mediums: encaustic, watercolor, graphite, oil, and various metals and stone in creating his paintings and drawings and beautiful small, but powerful, sculpture."
