Biography

Born in Carlisle in 1964, Colin is as passionate an artist as you will ever meet. Studying art at Carlisle College in the late 1980s, progressing to a degree in Fine Art at Exeter a decade later, Colin almost exclusively works outdoors, letting the way the environment impacts him feed through into the paint.

His thickly applied paint, distinct mark-making and energy-filled works have been admired and collected for many years, with numerous successful exhibitions within the North West and East of England, and for many years, in London. Colin has also been featured on several occasions in the prestigious Art of England monthly publication.
