Colleen McCleary from Canaan, NH is also known by the name of Keeny Paige.
Keeny started making clothing at age 16 when she wasn’t satisfied with her current wardrobe selection. Ambitious yet broke, she quickly took to fabric as a medium and produced three original fashions shows while attending Mascoma High School in Canaan, NH. Small town hallways became her runways as she sported her creations daily. After graduation in 2008, Keeny went on to Fashion School at Lasell College in Newton, MA. After becoming infamous on campus for her exuberant and experimental outfits, she graduated in 2012, Magna Cum Laude. She has interned with the Boston Ballet Costume Shop, Opera North, Revels North, and Cotton, Inc.
Keeny Paige is currently a freelance seamstress stitching at her office in Lyme, NH. She is also a writer, gardener, and hula hooper living by the river in Norwich, VT.
