Colin was born in 1957 in Marlborough, England. He trained as a technical illustrator in Cornwall and then worked for 20 years as an airbrush artist in photo-realism, for advertising agencies and design companies in St. Ives, Cornwall; Toronto, Canada; and Bath.
Colin now lives and works in Falmouth, Cornwall. His work is in oils on canvas, and is often inspired by light on and in water.
“I paint those things I see that inspire, move and draw me”, says Colin. “This happens mostly through the incredible beauty of the world around us. My hope is that I capture something of the wonder and awe of that beauty."
