Colin trained for four years at the Berkshire College of Art & Design studying both these disciplines, before moving into a career specialising in designing the interiors of international hotels. Throughout his career he has continued to hone his painting and drawing skills.
Since 2009 Colin have refocused on art, applying the attention to detail that was so important in his design work, to portraits of animals.
In his own words...
I like to paint an image that goes beyond that of the photograph. In particular, in my animal portraits I strive to capture the personality of the subject bringing life and energy to them, portraying the animal from unusual angles, as if peeking inquisitively at the viewer.
